I'm off to Scotland for a holiday, what do I need to know?

It's always good to be prepared.

Have you got your passport?

Agaliarept - 21 Oct 2016 13:54:29 (#2 of 187)

Changed up your monies?

Ah, good point. I hear they use 'poonds' up there.

Where in Scotland are you going to lapsed?

lapsedcat - 21 Oct 2016 13:58:18 (#5 of 187)

Near Kirkcudbright.

Donning a tam o' shanter with ginger wig attached is a good starting point.

This place is very good: http://www.thecastlerestaurant.net/

It does Irish Stew.

FGBFGB - 21 Oct 2016 14:03:50 (#10 of 187)

Kirkcudbright is not pronounced as it is spelt. The locals say "Korko-bray".

Don't forget to go into every chippy and ask for deep fried Mars bars.

Scotland is nice. Apart from the midges.

I plan on striding into the first bookshop I find and saying loudly to the storekeep:

"D'ye have any Burns?"

He will doubtless reply in the affirmative. "Aye," or suchlike.

I will then pull the rug from under him, saying "Ye should see a doctor then!" and retreat to great applause.

Deep fried midges.

Agaliarept - 21 Oct 2016 14:12:23 (#15 of 187)

Don't forget your Speedos. Scotland is tropical this time of year.

wickeltisch - 21 Oct 2016 14:14:00 (#16 of 187)

And don't forget your kilt. I guess it's purple.

wickeltisch - 21 Oct 2016 14:19:55 (#17 of 187)

It looks most becoming, I must say.

A Farage mask, or even a ukip rosette, will provoke good-humoured banter and friendly mirth.

Jacob_Richter - 21 Oct 2016 14:21:24 (#19 of 187)

The cape will go splendidly with that.

It's been the best year for ages for midges. I went kayaking near Oban, and the guide I went with said it was the first season in 25 years he hasn't needed a midge net.
