    Well that was the choice...

    North to the NW coast of Scotland, or South to Devon... both about the same mileage :thumb: :thumbdown::thumb::thumbdown:

    The weather forecast for the next 7 or 10 days looks a bit "variable" in both directions.:rain::sin:

    So decision made, Scotland it is, the scenery is brilliant, even when the weather is not so brilliant....

    Just hope the sun shines from time to time...

    Fingers crossed....... already looking forward to some "square slice" sausage for breakfast....:thumb:

    We have the same predicament as you and Dianne next week .
    We have had our main abroad holiday this year , so we want to do 2 weeks in the UK with the 3 kids and 2 dogs.
    We planned on doing Southern Wales and Devon , but could just as easily do IOW , Scotland , Northumberland , East coast. We haven't got anything booked.

    I think we will chase the sun , or run away from the hurricanes :Rofl1:

    What ever you decide to do , enjoy.
    Just try and avoid car boot sales , or you will have no room left , at home or in the motorhome , because of all the toys :Wink:
