    First Port Of Call For A Pint?

    Following an earlier suggestion for meeting and greeting on arrival, what about meeting here for a pint once you've booked in/pitched yer tent etc. That way, folk arriving on their own or who ha'e nae pals will know where to team up with other Tossers.

    AFAIK, it looks over the water so you'll be able to welcome the arrivals as they stroll into town.

    Good call Ronno, can't be more than 150 yards to the Ceilidh Place from there! Difficult to miss if you keep the seafront on your left as you roll in to town.

    Forget the Guiness, make it with Champagne the real thing!, better still substitute Kirsch for the blackcurrant and have yourself a Kirsch Royale

    Sounds good, if it's on the front we can take a pint out to sit on the seawall in the sun

    Lads,

    A few of us were up in Ullapool a few weeks ago, and made the mistake of having one dinner in the Argyle Hotel (which had been pretty good last year).

    The meal was declared by all eight of us to be low-grade dogfood.

    I would recommend that you keep the Argyle as an absolute last resort, and only after you have rummaged through the waste bins by the chippy and found nowt there

    Have a great weekend - and don't make Garfield spew his ring up again........

    Al
    If I am ever on life support - Unplug me......
    Then plug me back in..........

    See if that works .....
