Iknowsomestuff :
"Sorry, but that's how many episodes are out right now so unfortunately there are no more to download. The dvd won't be available for about another year until all episodes have broadcast in the all the European countries. They're being rolled out in different months depending on where you live."

Howdy. If a bloke were to fly into Glasgow, what would be the easiest way to get to Oban from there? Is there rail service direct into the city? Bus service maybe? I know the Oban airport is not open to commercial flights yet so... About how long would it take to get there? Once there I plan on taking a ferry to Coll. It will be good times. Thanks!

AndyGLA :
"The train would be best I think. BTW Oban “airport” opened earlier this month I think, the only flight is a sea-plane service from Glasgow City Centre, the flight leaves from the River Clyde next to the Science Centre and takes around 20 minutes."
brigadoonlass :
"There is also a bus from Buchanan Street bus station."

"Was one a blonde with measurements of 35C 23 34, who just lurved wearing stretch PVC? Then it might have been me. Sorry darling, I've moved on now"
gazzump123 :
"next time you go to a festival take a pen and get second names...lol"
E.J :
"You'll be lucky!!"
Mental Mickey :
"Without a last name = Situation hopeless Even with a last name, your chances would be slim to none, but at least you could try online phone directories or search the electoral roll. Next time, take a piece of paper and a pen and pencil!"
Veronica Alicia :
"Hi Riboid As already mentioned, more information is needed - I have a copy of the Electoral Roll on disc, but I need surnames. You could try Friends Reunited or the Glasgow newspaper and send a letter to the "Readers' Letters Column" asking the above question."
bikerbear :
"i bet you caught it from marrie anne !! lol !"

The seaplane is back - a new service has been launched which will link the Scotish city of Glasgow to the Argyll town of Oban. The company said further destinations were planned, with the Isles of Skye and Mull likely to be added.
