.
I would just like to point out that the Christmas drink has never been less than three hours travelling for me.

In light of the fact that this forum has been going for 18 years I think it is my turn.

I think we've all been to the Troosers at some point of the year - is that no enough?

I would be interested in coming along and introducing myself if that would be OK. Either Oban or Embra is fine and most of the dates are fine but the sooner a definite target the better :)

May I be vaguely decisive and state Friday 8th December to be the date and, despite Nick's plaintive whines frae the west, Edinburgh to be the locus.
That just leaves the choice of hostelry and I am all for tradition and keeping with the Doric in Market St. but, as always, am amenable to other suggestions.

OK it's a date.

Now who's up for the Oban Inn tomorrow or maybe Friday?

I'll see what time the trains is, and what time I'll stop working.

Just seen this.

Afraid Catherine's son and family are coming up tomorrow for their first visit to Seil so I won't be available, could do a quick meet-up in the T&T maybe?
