Oh gosh jolly foxy moxy.  I am actually going to this:

Oh oh oh.  I really am trembling as I write this.  Can't believe it.  Discovered the Fence Collective at Green Man last year but have always loved the Glasgow Scene.  Missed out on the Home Game this year because I didn't find out about it until Feb, but some intangible thing (guardian angel) inspired me yesterday to find out some details so I didn't miss the next one.  And curled up waiting for me was the news that tickets for this even more amazing event would sell tickets today.  One call to my most trusted internet wiz later, and at the magic hour of noon, while I was squirming in first aid training, he scored me tickets in the 7 minutes they took to sell out.

No idea who I'm going with or how I'm getting there.  I've never been to The Highlands.  What an awesome adventure.

Now I'm going to go and pinch myself.  Lots.  Hard.  And squeee like I've never squeed before.

You may find mirabehn, mirrorshard, gnimmel or purplepiano could help you there, as they are not long back from Eigg.

For reference, you get there by ferry from Mallaig, and you can get to Mallaig by train, though it's a real push in one day. Glasgow to Mallaig is about five and a half hours, but is awesomely beautiful, once you get past Faslane. Ferries aren't every day - see the calmac website.

The amazing organisers have chartered to ferries for the there and back from Arisaig which they have co-ordinated with the Glasgow trains. Will prob try for heading North on Thursday, throwing myself on someone's mercy/ having a brilliant night out, then catch the 9am from Glasgow. And just push through on the Monday back, book the Tuesday off to sleep. Oh my god :flails:

If you wanted a nice hotel to break the journey up there,. with awesome food, I can thoroughly recommend The Prionces House Hotel in Glenfinnan. They're lovely people, and I'm really not kidding about the food.

While that is a lovely suggestion - thank you - you are underestimating the cheap-skateyness and social-lovingness of me. Cheap tix can be bought as far as Glasgow, but mixing and matching ups the price (up to double). Plus, there are lovely people in and about Glasgow whom I would dearly love to see. And if those logistics don't work, I prefer hostel and theatre and pub and bimbling to lonely hotels, however kind and lovely. Although, delicious food mmmm. Def noted in my little black book.
