Seems to be a big thing nowadays. Load of p!sh if you ask me: http://www.tartanweek.com/

And if you'd like to view some tartan on parade, this webcam is for you:rolleyes: http://www.earthcam.com/usa/newyork/timessquare/

Even Billy Connolly has tickets available for his shows.

And, is it just me, or is our leader, Jack McConnell, extremely poor in conversing/understanding:confused:

:zzz:

Dunno the names, most seemed to start with "Glen" though.

Was up in the lands North of GLA some years ago, for a mate's wedding, and we visited a few pubs and I was amazed at the coincidence that every time I found a single-malt that I liked, the pub ran out soon after :confused:

They even had a "Roberts" type place in town that sold nothing but "singles", and bottled them to your order

Lovely country, so relaxed, and they produce the finest "relaxing fluid" that a man ever tasted ;)

Shame on my mate though - as a "Jock" (though, with a name like "Murphy", I guess his grandaddy was a good swimmer!) he can't drink Scotch:{

(well, he can, but next day he's exceedingly ill:E )
