    I've sailed by Scottish shores for the past 40 odd years and anchored where we fancied.

    Wild swimming = swimming ( not in a pool )
    Wild Camping = camping ( not in a caravan site )
    Glamping = imaginary activity stage managed by Sunday Magazine photo editors to flog fantasy lifestyle envy.
    Parkour ( aka "Free Running ") = running about and jumping things like kids always did.

    No, Mann is an island. According to John Donne, anyway.

    There's a little shop in the village 'co-operative food'.
    Is Wild honey 'un-co-operative food'?

    The general acceptance hereabouts is that any activity carried-out in the great outdoors is now a "wild" event/pass-time.
    So is "wild sex" only possible outdoors, or is it more to do with frenetic movement?
    Just askin', 'cos if the former, I think I had wild sex back in the '60s

    Definitely a nice place. Their 'wild showers' are good too, albeit one time we went there there was definitely a 'wild party' on board someone's boat that kept us all awake, the b*stards...
