Off on a dander...

Hi all, A quick note to say that I'm reluctantly moving on from using the TS forum - life's getting just a bit too busy these days! I'll still be floating around in other spheres, so will see a few of you around from time to time! Cum an eachdraidh na h-Albainn beo, is le gach deagh dhurachd, Chris :)

Hi Chris, Thanks for letting us know about the holiday. Would be frustrating to travel to Edinburgh, only to find out that everything was closed.
