Aren't earthquakes normal for central & western Scotland (though usually small ones)? For example, Comrie area used to have frequent earthquake swarms in 18th & 19th centuries, I seem to recall.

I slept through the 2008 one so I have yet to experience what an earthquake feels like.

Just reading this thread for the first time.

I experienced the 2008 earthquake. It was weird...I could actually hear it before I felt it. It was like a deep rumble that got closer. 

It was quite amusing actually, was 19 at the time and dad came marching up the stairs asking what I was doing to vibrate the house...I had two huge floor standing speakers at the time so I guess he thought it was the bass from those!

Didn't get that one here.

The two I most remember are one in the late 1980's with I think Wrexham as the epicentre. Happened early'ish one morning when I was just getting up for school/work. The other was in the early 00's and hit Manchester where I was at work. A colleague put his hands over his head and we all took the p*ss.
