I like a more versatile machine, a Landrover or Range Rover if costs are not too high. I prefer good food & wine over cars. Cars shall be useful, food shall be tasteful, wine shall be wonderful and I will be greatful.

Anthony, thanks for your enquiries!

I am just interested in getting from Edinburgh to Killin - no special requirements of transportation.
I completely trust in your recommendation!

Cheers,
Günther

I will also likely arrive in Edinburgh in the early afternoon of Saturday 7th.
From what I see, there is one German group already, can I join them or do we rent a second car?

To go back, I would be interested to spend the night from Saturday 14th to Sunday in Edinburgh to visit the city and would be willing to share a room with one of you. Or we do it during our week, that's also fine.

Fine with me, Simone!

Apart from the fact that Anthony is from London, Günther is from Vienna and Germany did not win the last war .... the car is --- äh --- German?

Haha, I hope the car is neutral.

Maybe we can rent a van instead of several small cars? I don't know what's cheaper -- I have only ever rented small cars in my life -- but I would guess that a big single car is cheaper in every respect. Thomas's van was quite convenient when we travelled around in Southern Germany two years ago.

Maybe it's time to start another list - for those arriving in Edinburgh on the 7th who want to car-share. So far I have:

Frank
Danulon
Simsurace
Thomas
Erik?
Anthony

nfoto is also arriving in Edinburgh but hasn't yet said how he plans to reach Killin.

Chris is travelling from home in his own car and may be able to collect a couple of members from Edinburgh.

So far there is no-one planning to fly into Glasgow.

As I have posted elsewhere, I will be available to pick anyone who can't be squeezed into a rental vehicle.

I have rented a Passat Estate (or similar) and arranged carry Thomas, Frank and Danulon.  That is a full load.  My BA flight arrives at 13:05, Thomas is a bit earlier, and the other are around the same time as me.

The advantage of several vehicles is that it gives more flexibility once we are in Killin, so that everybody does not have to go to the same place at the same time.

Regarding cars, please consider that I will have my own, a large estate, while I am there (I leave Wednesday to go home).
I will however be unable to give people a  lift from airports, as I will likely drive up Friday night and camp one night on Loch Tay to do (weather permitting) a photography hike the next morning.
