escape to ... 1

When Peak Oil gets really bad there are some places that are more survivable than others. I'm happy to share a few tips - you'll be grateful for them one day!

Perhaps head for Wanlockhead, Scotland's highest village. This lies about 30 miles south of Glasgow. It's quite isolated, with only one road in and out, has a water supply though not much land for growing or trees. The weather currently is cold as can be expected, but with climate change kicking in it may become a lot milder ...

And house prices are still reasonable - though likely to fall soon. I bought my first house in the neighbouring village in 1990 for £18,100.
