    Just coming to the end of touring Scotland for the past 6 weeks, I have been useing a BT Dongle which if it can find wfi it will, if not it uses dial up, 95% of the time I have been able to access the internet but mostly on dial up which has been very slow.
    But to my amazment we have just pulled on to a CCC Site on Skye high in the mountains, (this morning when wild camping) we stood in awe watching two Golden Eagles overhead.
    On this site miles from anywhere I have a full instant BT Fon signal, I never fail to be surprised.

    Fancy that! We found Scotland to be a bit of a "twilight zone" with internet and mobiles!

    Are you at Edinbane?

    Hi Marie yes we are at Edinbane, but only one night here we are making our way home tomorrow slowly, we have only stayed on sites 6 nights in the six weeks other wise wild camped or picked up a holiday rally. Catching up whats been going on in the Fun, now with this fast link seems like everyone is enjoying themselves at Shepton. :BigGrin:

    We've stayed at Edinbane a few times in the past before it was C&CC.:Smile:
    We've been there in a small tent with the kids when it didn't stop raining for a week!:cry:
    We've been in our old panel van but never in the new van.

    Somewhere we must return to!
