I'm here for the week on a "business trip".
Tell me about some nice pubs please.
I'm near Union Street.
Cafe 52 - for food and outdoor drinks, just take plenty cash
The Tunnels - more a live music venue but good still
Ma Camerons, The Illicit Still or Blackfriers for food
Prince Of Wales
all just off union street, enjoy your stay now
have fun here, just watch out for the huge holes in the roads
Kilau is good for a coffee and a listen to music. college is nice and quiet most week nights.
i shall immerse myself in Google Maps
nice and quiet sounds perfecto (Y)
meat? possibly. i'm not sure what my plans are but it could be arrange if i can overcome my fear of meating people from the internet
he brings several pounds of raw meat to all meats just because he can
but i i like it so much so here is a <3
(i've never been here before)
i has a couple of pints in The Grill. it's a great old mans pub for whiskey lovers. i'm not one but it's still a great wee place.
after The Grill i went to another pub. i can't remember the name of it. it was great. it was just off Union Street. it was underground but the toilets where upstairs actually above the street. great wee place. will return.
Aberdeen == pretty good so far.
and it's really pissing me off
THAT'S WHAT IT WAS CALLED
but what's Inverness like, in generalised terms?
to catch the ferry to Lerwick...
Aberdeen - Lerwick - Faeroes - Iceland - Norway - back to the UK
all by ferry! I know it's possible, there's passenger liners (in fact, didn't you work in a port?), and I just think it would be a fantastically gusty way to see that part of the world.
One day, when I've got the money...
the company you would want is Smyril Line (http://www.smyril-line.com/)
that would be an AMAZING trip.
i used to be passport control! :D heh
I just found this:
"Smyril Line announced on Thursday November 6th that their scheduled sailings to Scrabster and Bergen in 2009 are CANCELLED with immediate effect and the service discontinued.
At the moment there is consequently no practical means of reaching Iceland by ferry from mainland UK, although there may be limited options available when Smyril Line publishes its revised sailing schedule in due course."
Stay well clear.
i come for the most remote part of Scotland so we've got feck all. Inverness hasn't got much more. Invershneggie is nowt but a pitstop on the way Aberdeen/Glasgow/Edinburgh.
Caithness is much more exciting.
