    Just wondering?

    I hope that I am not speaking out of turn, but is the Quaich setting forth to adventures new, in 2019?

    This is a very good question.

    I floated the idea of another trip for the quaich a few years ago and was met with luke warm response.

    Since then it has sat on a shelf.

    Come on chaps, have a go! Its a small way to make our kilted world just that bit smaller and is a great way to put faces to names too and speaking from personal experience, its fun!

    If I might make one small observation though? From what I have seen, it is generally better if there are short visits, say two weeks perhaps three, before the Quaich resumes its travels once more. That way interest is kept fresh for the members as a whole and not forgotten as the Quaich is "lost" in some backwater or other.

    Just saying.

    Oh and count me in for another Quaich visit too! If Scotland fits into any proposed itinerary.

    Maybe someone can give us newer members a rundown of the xmarks quaich history and how the whole thing works.
