That sounds really great George, if only Scotland wasn't so far away I would be there.

Cheers Greg . We are now doing 0ne day tickets for people who have to work on Fridays. It's going to be great Craic ! I have some very good sponsored deals for nice accomodation. £ 30 self catering for couples in a posh stone townhouse , or staying with my friends , £30 a head. All proceeds go to the festival. We are a Constituted Voluntary Group. Not for profit.

When I'm not walling I'm leading walking groups. And thats just what i'm doing on those dates. Would have enjoyed that and got in a couple of days on the hills maybe too.
I just like stone!!

There are some good coastal walks here and some great mountain walking just west of us. Ben Loyal and Ben Hope, Morven are all nearby.
