My partner and I are due to move to SOMEWHERE in Scotland UK (rural - ish) within the next year and wonder if anyone can suggest good areas to move to where we can still race our pigeons? Does anyone have any thoughts?

That sounds pretty much what we are looking for we need to sell a property here and then we are going to upsticks, so we'll certainly look round those area's now, it's great to have an idea of places that race.
Thank you for your reply, I only found this site yesterday and everyone that has replied has been really helpful and friendly, I can see me becoming a regular at this rate! Will also be posting some pic's tonight/tomorrow of some of our birds and cree if the rain will only hold off for a while.

sorry forgot to mention,,there are 5 stonebuilt (some are listed buildings!)doocots(crees)in my area,,3 in aberdour(near castle)2 in burntisland and a very pretty one on private property(bowbutts)in kinghorn!
we have a lot of ferals here(including my babies)and many woodys and collereds too,one lady in town keeps white garden fantails too.
another plus here is house prices are pretty good,we are 30 mins from edinburgh by train(can see city from my garden)its an easy commute for work etc,my local racer freinds loft is nice,it faces firth of forth,stunning veiws of edin and the islands of the forth(also teeming with bird life),other places id recomend in scotland are east lothian,same deal,,coastal/rural very pretty and midlothian,just outside edinburgh,some nice wee towns and villages with good racing fraternity

Living in Durham, North East. Been having some probs posting pics, have uploaded to pictures and albums on the user cp but can't seem to get them onto a thread reply, bit of a novice at this I'm afraid any suggestions would be most welcome, as I'm getting a little bald from pulling my hair out!!!!

That's what we thought as well, my partner and I just got together 16months ago, and one day we were talking and realised we both had this dream to move up to Scotland, so fingers crossed and property sale required and we will be up there! Don't suppose anyone wants a bungalow in Washington UK?? Ha!
