    Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!:p

    Don't know about Scotland ( Never been) , but I live in Wales.... My favourite place is the isle of Angelsey and the Snowdonia area... So gorgeous up that way. My uncle owns a caravan (trailor) in Snowdonia National park.. We went last year for a week, it's so gorgeous.

    Some piccs to bore you with..

    Angelsey...

    And here is the most tranquil place I've ever been too. Sat by that river, with no care in the world. No sounds.. Until we were about to leave and a rescue helicopter was rescuing someone.. or a drill?

    Sorry to bore you. :p

    As those who may know me from elsewhere.. know I'm very proud to be Welsh and proud of Wales........

    Beautiful photos Steve. Didn't realize that you were Welsh! You and our Ieuan!

    So, there are at least two to recommend Welsh places to stay, and I know there are several of our members fromScotland, so there should be some good recommendations forthcoming from them soon! ;yes:

    bored, no way. What a wonderful trip down memory lane. We stayed at Macdonald Plas Talgarth Resort ,in Pennal, Powys
    the resort overlooked the River Dyfi in Snowdonia national Park, it had an 18thcentury , Georgian Manor house on site. We took side trips to Conwy Castle and some of the surrounding towns. Wonderful, Steve you have reason to be proud, the best I can say is , you live in Maine, only its across that big pond of water.

    Snowdonia is beautiful.

    Port Merion is pretty.

    Brecon is also pretty you could visit local market towns and travel on the mountain railway.

    West Wales has some lovely beaches around the Tenby area and there's a lovely little island to visit called Caldy island inhabited by monks. Locally there's Oakwood Park.

    The capital city Cardiff has lots to see and do including free entrance to the national museum or a speed boat trip around the bay also home to the only 5* hotel in Wales. Take a train ride up the valley and visit The Big Pit museum.

    Tour the castles there's lots of them from Caerphilly (home to the Big Cheese festival this time of year with shows and medieval reinactments) to Conwy and a really pretty one called Castel Coch (the red castle) which looks like Cinderellas Castle.
