What more can I say that has not already been said? Yes an all round excellent event. Warm, friendy,  Scottish hospitality was experienced and enjoyed by all. Thanks again to Richard and Eileen for opening up their home to us all and to Charles and Heather for taking us "under their wings". Thnks too, to all the unspoken heroes who worked hard behind the scenes and gave up their valuable time to make this event happen. Really looking forward to the return visit to NI in 2012.
