    Possible Scotland Hang Discussion Thread

    Some of us have been discussing a possible group hang in Scotland on another members intro thread so I figured we should start a new thread...

    Quite a few folk have expressed interest in a group hang both from Scotland and England. Of course anyone who wants to come will be welcome to do so

    So who wants to come?
    Suggestion of dates?
    Locations?

    Discuss...

    I would like it to happen before May 21st (my holidays expire then ).
    Galloway forest has been suggested as a location which I would be more than happy with, I've only been once and camped near Newton Stewart, the woods were brilliant but it probably wasn't the best spot for a group hang.

    I'm up for it! I live in Newcastle and travel by motorbike, so I'd appreciate somewhere not too remote. I'm freelance so can be poetry flexible on dates.

    There are no wrong ways to do things... Only alternative methods that don't work!!

    I for sure can't say I am coming, but for sure I wish I could. It would be a dream trip for sure. I hope you folks get up a huge group and have a wonderful time.

    Interested, depending on dates.
    Can I suggest before or after the "Wee Beasties" are in town.

    I am interested, I was out just above Traquair on the Southern Upland Way last Saturday. Used a new UQ for the first time and had to take my merino long johns and long sleeved top off during the night, nice problem to have. I will post a link to a report with pics when I get round to it.
