cosy cottages on Skye
It's limited to 17 people over three cottages in the tiny village of Struan on Skye. It's pretty remote and there isn't much in the way of local facilities. The cottages themselves are very cosy - each has its own woodburning stove and supply of wood.
EDIT: I'm told that the local shop has reopened and sells very basic supplies (eggs, bread, milk and papers). The nearest supermarket is in Portree but if you want to stock up on the way, there is a large Co-op in Broadford which is on the way.
Warm / waterproof clothing is a very good idea - it can and does get very cold and wild up there in October...

From what I can work out, if you upload a pic directly from the group page it shows in the group page - ie mine's and Pete's.

Maybe showing my age, but as they used to say a
Well, I can only see 2 photos on this meeting page. One of Tooth, and one of Goggz. I and others have tagged/linked our uploads to the Skye Meet. But they are nowhere to be seen in the meeting page.
I have posted my pics via the Photos -> Upload, as opposed to via the group or my profile. I can see my photos in there and in the gallery so I don't know if that route works better than the others.
