Best of luck with the sale, John. We've just bought a house and will be moving next month - then ours is on the market too!!!!

:scratch: Thought you had thought of moving towards civilisation Maggie? No more mileage to supermarkets or shopping and charges for deliveries to the end of the world at one point. :mrgreen:

Have had family in Thurso in recent years so have some idea of where on the ends of the earth you are going.

Mind - the grandson did complain of the cost of housing when he moved dramatically south into the UK.

It's all relative, Flo. Where we are now we have a 40 mile round trip to get our click and collect order. Pretty much the only company who deliver to us, without surcharge, is Amazon! A trip to the nearest supermarket is 140 mile round trip (220 to the nearest big supermarket). What used to be a pleasant day out driving to Inverness to do a big shop has been made a nightmare by the sheer volume of campervans etc on the road nine months of the year now. A 2.5 hour journey can take anything up to 3.5 hours along with very frayed nerves and tempers. Oh, and our last permanent GP retired in the summer - we're now completely reliant on locums.

Where we're moving is still a small village but has home deliveries from no less than 3 supermarkets! 20 minutes up the road to the nearest main shopping centre and and about 1.5 hours down main roads to Inverness. And they have a permanent GP.

I think that's near enough to civilisation for us. :lol:

Oh and did I mention the 2, yes 2, greenhouses in the big garden!!!!

Everybody on the move? I envy you... I think I'll be stuck with my council house forever. Nevermind, could be worse.

My plans are quite fluid until this place sells, I am planning on a canalboat in Scotland, moorings are cheap and lifestyle is laidback. I am looking for community life again, looking for project to invest in. I have some tribe in Spain where I can stay for a bit and help build/rebuild houses/ gardens/ acequias / whatever needs to be done.
