Thanks for all the updates etc - most useful :D

For future updates to existing POIs it is a great help if you quote the name of the POI.

I have added a couple of new spots from your information ...

Sounds fabulous. Is that the same coast, near Banff & Macduff, which is good for dolphin spotting ?

Thanks

I'm afraid not, Banff & Macduff are situated in Northern Grampian, you need to be heading a tad further north for the other locations mentioned.:plane:

Hi

A good read - it brought back some lovely memories. Just one point - if that car park at the Gairloch Heritage Centre is the one I am thinking of, then it is a tight fit for larger vans. We tried to pull in there but had to abandon it.

Hi,
It wasn't at the Heritage centre but about 500m further up the hill and we have a 7m Hymer and it was fine. The view was gorgeous[ATTACH=CONFIG]24355
