    That’ll take you a few days as most of it is still intact ….. :laugh_at:

    Unfortunately it’s run by The National Trust and English Heritage – maybe they do open days too ?

    Some of the forts are well worth visiting.

    And if you like walking – there’s loads of brilliant walks all over Scotland.

    The Scottish Parliament introduced a Freedom to Roam Act last year, and as we don’t have trespass laws in Scotland, there’s plenty to choose from.

    If you do get a motorbike – a really cheap way to travel round is to use the Bothy’s and Hostels. A lot of them allow camping in their grounds too.

    raaaraaaraaaraaaraaa It might be a shithole but it’s our shithole. London baby yeah!!:love:

    I think everyone always holds an affinity for their home wherever that is.

    I don’t think London is a shithole mate – I was only joking. But I don’t like it either.

    I’ve lived and worked in London at various times over the years.

    But there are vastly more people living in London alone, than in the whole of Scotland.

    I find it overcrowded, and I miss the countryside and desolate area’s that you can easily find throughout Scotland.

    My favourite parts of England are The Lake District, Cumbria, Derbyshire, and the more remote parts of Lancashire and Yorkshire.

    Unfortunately – I’ve never been lucky enough to visit the South West – but would really like too.

    Haha don’t worry mate, some parts of London are complete shitholes!! I’m torn between living in the country and the concrete jungle! Although last weekend i spent the weekend in a place called seaford near brighton and thought it was brilliant. When i get a new job i’m gonna consider moving down there. It’s a small town but is right next to brighton itself so you get the best of both worlds!:love:
