I was in the CG shop in Crieff on Monday and they had 3 in the display cabinet.
So, it's probably limited to the Vistor Centre.

I didn't bother to ask the staff as they are all new since 2008, and this is a 2002 weight.

Next time you're in there it might pay you to ask about it, we would probably find out a bit more info then.

I doubt very much if we'd find out more  - unless I dragged one of the makers through from the glasshouse to ID it.
- or asking the busy shop staff to get all of the boxes and display cards out.

As I was on a tight timetable, I had to move on.

Methinks others might be there before I am, as I live in the Midlands.

Thanks to all for your comments on this weight, at least we've all had a good go at it and chewed it over. So we'll all keep an open mind on it and perhaps it may appear in a future publication somewhere. What a minefield this subject matter is! Onward and upward.

Whilst looking for something else, I came across the weight at Replacements Ltd. - so it seems to have been sold to the US as well.
