Oh and out of curiousity, how did you manage to spend nine days in Scotland last week? That's quite a feat.

What about a holiday maker visa? Wouldn't this allow up to 2 years in Scotland? 1/2 of it working and the other 1/2 not?

hhmm the holiday maker visa sounds interesting, I was wanting to stay for about 6 or more months. Do you know anything about it? I was in Scotland on tour with MacBackpackers. I did run out of money and was living on 2 bananas a day and cleaning the hostel inexchange for my room. I did manage to get drunk every night and at some point was chased down by a security guard, as i remember i hid in a bush and wasn't caught lol
