If you want a taste of Scotland without a long drive, then Dumfries and Galloway is really nice; beach, great walks, a number of bigger hills and some nice little towns.

If you want the best place in the world; Ullapool and northwards is off the scale.

A long drive, though, including along the interminable A9

Now there’s a challenge. I reckon I’ve found the best fodder in Scotland but will now be road testing this place. Mince or steak?

Aye

Spent 5 horrendous nights in D&G being swarmed by midges every night.

You literally couldn’t sit outside as they just ruined it.

Not a problem on the coast though. Inland is awful.

No problem with midges at esco towers. I’ve got two African gentlemen who swat them away for me. Best £20 I’ve ever spent
