    Hi nic a char -

    Welcome to the forum. I'm born and bred North East (England) but I've always felt much more affinity with Scotland for some reason. My Grandmother's surname was Cameron and she always reckoned her family originated from Scotland (maybe around Fort William) so perhaps there's Highland blood in me after all. Off to Skye in four weeks and can't wait.

    Anyway, that's not remotely interesting - suffice to say, welcome aboard.

    Well that IS interesting IMHO - some of my ancestors are from around Rannoch, some from Oz, & I reckon tinker/swag blood explains my interest in light travel, living lightly, self-sufficiency and bushcraft. Enjoy Skye jinch - it's AMAZING in all weathers.

    Rannoch as in the moor? The dog leg road onto the moor from the south, on the way to Glencoe, is where my heartbeat doubles with excitement. I adore that area.

    Been to Skye a few times (and in all weathers) so know what to expect. Had a weekend at the JMC hut at Coruisk once which still ranks as one of the best weekends ever: loads of mates, loads of walking, bristine blue skies and turquoise sea and sand near the hut. Marvellous.

    Aye, the Rannoch Station end. Loch Ba is full of wild brown trout & it's FREE fishing btw...
    More controlled on Skye, but I can's see anyone grudging you breakfast from a corrie loch - in season natch (15 March - end September)
