    We've got a few wallplug holes dotted around our walls from the previous owners and would like to get rid of them. Could someone suggest the best way to go about this?

    I'd presume the best way would be to take down the wallpaper and replaster over everything but it's too much work to contemplate currently. Are there any other methods (some sort of injection filling?) which would involve less work perhaps?

    Any advice appreciated.

    I would just use a small amount of a polyfilla type product. Just fill the holes using a small scraper. Clean off around each hole as you go, with a damp cloth. It'll do the job for now, then you can do it properly when the wallpaper's all stripped off in the future.
