Thanks Al - really appreciate the heads up - that would have been very annoying.
I get my Rannoch Moor/Glencoe fix then  :) 8)

It's hardly stopped raining for the past month, so hopefully the weather is turning nice for a while :-)  It's a shame i'll be working for most of the week :-/

Hopefully we will get together at some stage, you know where we live!
It would also be good to see your craft if possible?
We are bringing anoraks and cosy jumpers!
Shorts we may not need.  8)

I'm working most of the week, but Sunday and possibly Friday I'm not, so depending on weather the TS3 may make an appearance on those days  ??? .  The wind maybe too strong for my liking on Sunday, but I do need to try out the new divider skirt I fitted a few weeks ago.  I will of course pop down to Harbour cottage during the week as the person.

Understood, so please let us know your plans ref coming to see us, so we can make sure to meet up rather than miss each other.
All saddled up for the 1000 mile round trip, with Trailer bearings and brakes and Sparkle all serviced!
After this season, Winter will be a rest!  ::)

Looking at the current weather forecast in Lochcarron for next week, I reckon someone must be on good terms with the G man and mother nature  :D

Lochcarron garage is shut on Sunday, so you wont be able to get fuel from there.  They are open Monday to saturday 07:00 to 20:00hrs.  The Spar shop has a 24 hour fuel pump if your desperate. 


There is a cash machine at the Spar fuel station, but alas its not a free one I think its something like £1.80 to get cash out of it, so I don't use it.  During opening hours you can get cash back from lochcarron garage and the post office based in the Spar shop offers banking services for quite a few banks.

Rain in the Balearics
Wind in the Highlands.


We’re just having alfresco breakfast in beautiful weather in Essex.
Sadly no hovering...but hey...you can’t have everything.
