    That's such a shame I would miss knitting so much. Struggling a bit with eye problems & arthritis in my thumbs but soldiering on. The wool shop is lovely to browse even if you don't buy anything.

    The museums are great shelter during downpours and so interesting they have coffee shops too.

    It tossed it down when I was there even the poor little Shetland ponies looked depressed. Hope you get some decent weather.

      Decent weather would be nice but we'll make the best of it and enjoy ourselves. Looking to go to Shetland next and then the Outer Hebrides. I must say I enjoy being on the water even if it is only a ferry. There seems to be endless possibilities when sailing somewhere.

      Added bonus of course the exchange rate is the same and we are familiar with the language (English of course). All place names in the Highlands are dual signed in Gaelic (money wasted in my opinion) and we understand some of it written but as for speaking - well there are many variations depending on which island you are on.

        Signs in Wales are bilingual too. What a waste of money! I mean, why do we even need the English version?

          Ahh - there we differ (but I did laugh). That big English village - what's it called - oh yes, Wales.

            Not where I live. Do you know, I can go for days without speaking English - and this is only place I ever write anything in English.

            Anyway, have a good trip!
