Probably I won't attend the HU meeting, as it looks like it's fully booked and I could'nt be there from the beginning anyway...
Would be great if I could join you guys, at least for a part of the trip. Maybe we meet at Loch Ness?
Do you buy new tyres in Scotland?
The most expensive is probably the ferry. From Scrabster to Iceland it's about 180 EUR one way (bunk bed accommodation below car deck)
