    Hi all, took toad and all in to Edinburgh yesterday,walked Princes Street and around castle etc.
    Today have seen Forth Bridge and Falkirk Wheel ( nothing like the London Eye ) :Doh:
    Great bit of kit and well worth seeing.:thumb:
    Tomorrow off to see QE2 and Botanical gardens.
    CClub site in handy location just 4 miles from Edinburgh city centre.

    PS Scotch is bloody expensive up here :Sad: best buy it in England :thumb:

    Tell you why, I had to go to local GP to CClub site today to pick up a prescription. The surgery was at Muirhouse. Checked in and sat in waiting room, sign on leather seats says "Please refrain from slashing seats as we have had them recovered yet again".:Eeek:
    Couple of guys only had to wait a few minutes for their treatment, methadone I think :Eeek:
    Drove 50 yards down road to a small Lloyds Pharmacy to get prescriptions, they have a full time security guard to help prevent theft of drugs :Eeek:
    Think its less dangerous in Norwich :thumb:
