Quote:Live in Lake District at weekends.

Work in Aberdeen through week.

...travel home via Glen Coe, Skye or Torridon or at a real push Assynt.

Aberdeen to Lake District via Skye?? How about a sat nav? Wink

I have managed to convince my wife that the oil and gas capital of Europe centres Fort William, so far its working....... Smile

Quote:Lol. I was just thinking the same thing? What about via Paris? Surely that's got to be on the way?

Arhh but there are no mountains in gay Paris, as far as I know.....

Glad I don't go hill walking with you! Last time I looked at a map Skye & Assynt were NORTH of Fort Bill while the Lake District is SOUTH.
So either you or your wife seem to have a big geographical deficiency. Wink
Still if you can get away with it, good on yer!
