    Gavin's experience of shipping to dr5 sounds promising, so maybe x-rays aren't a problem. I haven't used the film supplier he has linked to, but APUG member Matt5791 runs a film supply company and is linked to a processing lab. I'm sure he'd be willing to send your film by special delivery to make sure it gets there on time, and it would certainly be worth a PM to ask.

    Cheers,

    So; Info so far:
    -Midges and weather are a concern.
    -Film and processing available from good sources. (Better than Canada!!)
    (>> I think, in 120; FP4, Fuji colour neg. film.>> In 35; Velvia 100, maybe Provia 400x)
    -Take Hasselblad system, my choice yes!
    (501CM, SWC)
    -Take Leica stuff, as well, my choice yes!


    I find it interesting that no one, so far, has suggested the Nikon SLRs.

    I was in the Outer Hebrides in May last year. I took my Nikon 35mm kit but I drove there from home (2 days!) so I could pack everything I thought I might use including LF. I hope to go back this June but by air.

    The Wife is on the net looking at B&Bs. Lots of nice ones over there. Most advertise a "Scottish Breakfast". She asks; what is a "Scottish Breakfast" and I told her it would be cold porridge and haggis but she says "that isn't true....so find out what is a "Scottish Breakfast"".

    What is a "Scottish Breakfast", please?

    Sausage, bacon and/or black pudding, beans, fried mushrooms, fried egg. A (tasty) heart attack on a plate...!

    Cheers,

    Scottish breakfasts are good. Some places have haggis instead of or in addition to black pudding. I like both far more than I expected I would!

    A bunch of Nikons; Feds, Zorkis and a Kiev; Pentax 67-II (inherited from my deceased father-in-law); Bronica SQ-A; and a nice Shen Hao 4x5 field camera with 3 decent lenses that needs to be taken outside more. Oh, and as of mid-2012, one of those bodies we don't talk about here.

    Favourite film: do I need to pick only one?

    Sounds like I can handle it, maybe not the "black pudding".

    I saw your pic of Rannoch Moor. Then I saw your portfolio. Wow! Very nice work. Something to reach for. Thank you for posting what you did.

    I write here from the Western Isles; Isle of Lewis actually. The sun has shone all day and its been lovely. Apart from finding two sheep stuck on a rock stack that the helicopter might have to winch off.
    Anyway, midges; there are known here but mainly in the interior. Film; we get film from AG or else through a contact on the island from Ilford. If you let me know in plenty of time I could source some for you perhaps. You could also develop the stuff here too if you like!
    Hotels; good or terrible. B&B's good; rented cottages much better. Maybe able to help with anyone of these.
    If you'd like to meet some crofters or criminals and the like - can help there.
    Black puddings; they are meant to be the best in the world here - I don't eat the things.

    Important stuff; waterproof and warm clothes. Boots.
    Any camera will do; they all work here :-) I use a Kowa, Hassie, Kiev, Zorki, Pentax etc etc.

    And of course there is the Lewis Photographica [continuing] group.
    Hope that helps.
    Its a nice place here. Lots to see and do. Loads of nice people. And sheep.
    do contact if you need any more info.
