Re: Hey Gary

Actually I feel the diet thing is blown out of proportion. People are becoming more health conscious these days, and there is plenty of great food available. It's just that the majority of the population choose less healthy options. Or perhaps sadly in a lot of cases, what they deem to be more affordable.

This needn't be the case however, as you can still eat healthily on a budget (although to be fair, as a vegetarian my food tends to be cheaper all round). Anyway that's straying onto other topics. Besides, you haven't lived till you've enjoyed a munchy box! :D

Despite hailing from Glasgow, I agree with Harold that Edinburgh is a must visit....really beautiful city. Glen Coe as well is spectacular, love that part of the country. All the years when I lived just a couple hours drive away, I took it all for granted and never ventured north much. I've been abroad for the past 5 years, and wish I had explored more of my nation's fantastic nature when I had the chance!

It helps if you get the weather though, sunny days can be few and far between. The good news is June is probably one of the best times you could come (ie. least likely to be freezing and pouring with rain). I was there last June and had a fantastic time on what must have been the hottest day of the year, went up through Glen Coe and visited the Nevis Range Mountain Gondola....amazing views, with minimal effort! I do enjoy a bit of hiking, but it's been a while :P

So many amazing places to see. The Isle of Skye in particular is one of my favourites, maybe a bit of a trek though, depending on where you were based. Enjoy your trip!
