Yes, great location.
The group of 6 Copiapoas are superb, and i never knew G.gielsdorfianus grew that big.

Nice one Ross excellent pics, stunning location.

Not only did the truncata need dusting it also needs repotting;)

Hi Ross,

Glad you were able to make it. It looks like you had a good time. Thanks for all the great photos. It really gives the forum members a good idea of our Glasgow Branch annual event. I've got some photos to post myself, but don't want to hijack your thread so will post them on my original thread.

Cheers,

Brian
