    Geez, This sounds like a good idea. I had a little correspondance with Tillman Crane last year. He was trying to put together a "Scottish Romp" with 8-10 people and I was really attracted to the notion. It didn't happen, but it might be cool to try ind involve him..he knows his way around..Evan Clarke

    Velvia 50 works in Scotland:


    although my scanning and photoshop skills need a little work



    Both photos were taken somewhere along the A837/A839 in late August 2005 using my modified Kodak 3A with an Angulon 90/6.8. It was one glorious day that started in Orkney in thick fog, rained a little near John O'Groats but otherwise was sunny all the way to Skye.

    Wait...I thought it was just the Irish who told tall tales?

    Is it a 10 room bed & breakfast?

    Hey, I have an idea...why don't we (from the colonies) decide when to go next year and then ask our friends from the mother country to come up with a basic itinerary? We can then individually put together our own travel/lodging packages.

    Drew- letting people put together everything for themselves is a sure-fire way to guarantee it won't happen. The best way to organize it is to plan everything BUT the plane trip, I think. Just tell folks meet at the Sign O' The Ram in Glasgow (or whatever) on Monday the 18th, and we'll have a hired van and driver to take us around. Hotel arrangements will be made, and evening meal suggestions provided as well. Aim for lodging that includes breakfast. If you'd like, I can research an itinerary and put together a price quote, special for APUG.

    Those pictures look like they managed the 1 sunny afternoon Scotland is allowed!

    If I could scrape together the time, I'd love to go - even when misty (normal) Scotland is a wonderful country.

    Except in the winter. I can give the winter a miss - dark and high winds on the Islands.

    Tillman Crane obviously knows what he is doing. I saw his book on Scotland and it is beautiful.

    It's my photography company's raison d' etre. I can start investigating possibilities and I'll keep everyone up to date here on the thread. Fall 07 sounds like a viable target date. Perhaps around the Columbus Day weekend? I'll look into a five- to seven-day package, and work up Ireland and a Scotland alternatives. I have a travel agent I can work with to help folks with the air and other arrangements. I'll aim for mid-level accommodations, nothing budget, and nothing exotic, unless I come across something that could be a must-see or must-do for a single night.

    Its like that in Aberdeen right now... a good gore-tex jacket is a very effective defence.
