A Trip to Pitlochry, Scotland - 24th March 1998

Sean decides to arrange a trip up to Scotland, to a nice little rented house up the hills near Pitlochry. His girlfriend, Carole, and her sister Isobelle who's over from France, come along too. Sean kicks the fun off early by getting pulled over by the rozzers on the M90, on the way up to the house. Whilst there, we poke around Pitlochry, visit a distillery in Aberfeldy, walk around Loch Ranoch and make the journey up to Loch Ness for a very underwhelming visit. When the rest go to Edinburgh for some shopping, Nosher heads off for a 10 mile walk to Pitlochry (for a couple of pints of "Heavy" in a suitable establishment). Later, Nosher and Isobelle climb Schiehallion, whilst the lazier Sean and Carole wait down below with a picnic.
