I have been looking at your threads about conventions. Seems you load of individualistas cannot agree on anything!
I volunteer my home in SW Scotland as a base. Nearby Wigtown has 27 second hand bookshops. The area is beautiful, beaches, hills, forests, cycling, fishing, shooting. There is a book festival every August. Artists community in nearby Kircudbright. Glasgow and Edinburgh easy reach by train for more culture.
I can accommodate 5 and feed 12, but plenty of accommodation nearby.
Not looking to make a profit out of anyone, but pay me costs, I am not rich.
Would love to meet some of you!
How close is this to the place where they filmed I know where I'm going! (Powell and Pressburger, 1945)?
Western Isles, Scottish Hebrides, I think it was, a town called Mull? I never particularly wanted to visit Scotland before, but the draw of that whirlpool is irresistible.
Nearby Wigtown has 27 second hand bookshops.
Mull is an island 1 1/2 hours and a ferry ride away. I stayed there once in a castle, very nice, but not as nice as here!
Mull of Kintyre (Paul McCartney) is further North.
naughty Wickerman festival yearly (seen the film?).
History +++++++, even some archaeological digs nearby.
Stupendous walks, Beautiful public gardens.
Dear me, I sound like a travelogue!
The Wickerman! The Wickerman! When is it? I might be in Scotland this summer!
(I think Convention 2013 is in Boston. 2014 is still open:)
Surely no virgins, male or female in the salon
# 11 probably correct, although that's not to say it isn't something we can aspire to
12-13 two most heartwarming posts on the subject of virginity I've seen all morning.
