    Welcome. You've come to the right place. My SO and I are headed to your fine country on July 20th for 10 days. Flying into Edinburgh and will spend our trip in the highlands. I'm obsessed with ski resorts in the summer as well as winter so we'll be headed to the Nevis range ski area at my request. We'll also be spending time at my favorite scotch distillery Oban. My friend's got other stuff planned for us but that's all I can remember at the moment. We're staying at the Clachaig Inn in Glenco for 3 days which will be cool. You definitely will get your ski stoke on here so enjoy!!!!

    Sorry. Summer is happening this week.
    You'll be needing your midgie repellent.

    Hahaha I don't go there for summer weather. I usually go to the UK in July or August to escape our humid hot summers. I'm sure the weather there will be positively delightful by our standards. We'll have repellant in hand.

    Hi Rod! Welcome! Lots of fun people here, and ski gatherings to boot.

    I’ve been working on my family tree, and discovered a long line of Scottish ancestors.....mostly Clan Ross (8th Laird of Balnogowan), Sir Alexander Thomas Glengarry MacDonald of Tulloch Castle, Queen Elizabeth Seton of Huntly Castle, and on. So, I need to visit Scotland to see where “my people” come from!

    Hi, my wife's family name is Ross. Most of your country is full of my people.
