Thanks for the help and information, it's much appreciated. I plan to try to take it with me when I go away at Easter and ask the Violin Shop in Glasgow to look at it.

whether or not your peg-holes will need re-bushing depends partly on how thick your existing pegs are and partly on which pegs are the problem. It's perfectly possible that all you will need is slightly thicker pegs.
How many mm is "a very few" by the way?
Sorry, I missed this post when I replied before. "A very few" in the worst case is about 2-3mm.

I'm fairly certain I could tell by eye if the OP would like to post a photo.
As most people know, I'm a complete technophobe and quite incapable of doing this on my own. But will see if I can coerce OH into doing it for me.
Many thanks again.
