Loch Ness Party, Scottish Highlands

Loch Ness Party: June 24th 2006

Fatboy Slim at Loch Ness

Unable to find a suitable beach back home, we went looking further afield. Bondi in Australia, and Bahia in Brasil came up trumps. So we tried Brighton again, and they just weren’t having it. Then our friends in Northern Ireland invited us to play Port Rush beach.


Then we thought, what if we could find a beach in Scotland too?

Then the phone rang ……Loch Ness calling. Funny how these things happen! Apparently there’ll be northern lights that night. The site is a beauty. The Celts are reknowned for their partyability. And we’ve got some cracking special guests on the bill. We needed something to do on Glastonbury weekend, and I couldn’t think of a more suitable caper! Let’s begin the search for Donald’s troosers!”
