    ....and the band played "I believe".

    Dad / daughter time is as good as dad / son time.
    Enjoy it Gerry.
    Admit defeat at the outset, it's easier.
    Be like the rest of us: dont do shopping, just carrying and (in the case of daughters / grandaughters) lots of paying.
    After your trip you will count the cost of Sophie's "non shopping" outing.

    You made your first mistake by going to Edinburgh, from what I remember it's mainly shops.

    Hi Brian

    I dont know what the site max is but we have been here a few times and seen loads of rv's and just now there is a big 5th wheeler on a fully serviced pitch. In my opinion i would say you would get on maybe not every pitch but the vast majority. I will as warden tomorrow for you and also have a look at the larger pitch's to see the size and let you know.

    It is an ideal location for visiting the city as you are only 1/2m to the bus stop then about 20mins takes you to city center.

    Just so you lot know we aren't going shopping tomorrow we are going to the Zoo to see the Pandas think shopping would be cheaper :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

    Hi Brian
    JUst had a word with the warden and they said not a problem just when you book state the size of the rv that way they will allocate you a big pitch. I had a walk round the site last night and quite a few tag mh's in and still plenty of room on pitch.

    Hope this helps.

    Gerry
