...and it's not the weather.
Trying to book a three/four night break next week in the UK somewhere, maybe Orkney or summer in the Hebrides...and I might as well fly to Istanbul and have a holiday there for the same price. Calmac want £140 for a vehicle and 2 people from Oban to Tiree? Aberdeen to Orkney at about £300 per person. Don't even think about trying to go to Scilly.
Don't understand why you can fly/visit to so many places, so far away for nothing and then why its so killer expensive to get to places in the uk.
