Gotta say I am NOT an HD-basher, but I don't think it would be on my list of destinations if I was planning to toured Scotland...

They implied that it's very popular ... like the village where they filmed "Last of the Summer Wine", or Elvis's house, or any crap motorcycle that has a "Von Dutch" cartoon painted on the tank .... Big Money!

I would think the Neander Valley in Germany would have a much deeper pull.

That's slate, so if it was installed right, it shouldn't leak, and should last forever .....
