How not to drive a lorry


Not posted here for a while. We woke up one morning a few months back to the sight of lorry crash outside the house.

Spot the Otter


Ella and I were on the beach at Druidston Haven in Pembrokeshire last week. We were lucky enough to see an otter very close up, about 10m away. It sat and watched us for a while and then wanderered off. I have never seen one this closely before, it seemed almost tame.

Lego Calmac Ferry


I promised Joel that I would make a Caledonian MacBrayne ferry out of lego. This is not an easy task when you only have limited amounts of lego. Anyway here is my first attempt, it is vaguely based on the MV Loch Nevis. It even has a ramp that goes up and down to load the cars!

Arran Panorama


Recently spent a night up on the Arran ridge. This is the classic panoramic view from Casteal Abhail

Just got back from the West Coast again. Here are a couple of panoramas which try to do justice to the wonderful weather

Mighty Conifers


We have spent many an afternoon wandering around Ardkinglas gardens at the head of Loch Fyne. This tree, a mighty Silver Fir never fails to amaze me, it is over 10 metres in girth and has 4 seperate trunks, each of which must be 40 metres or more high. If you do ever visit, dont forget to have a plate of prawns afterwards at Loch Fyne Oysters up the road, and have a pint of Avalanche from Loch Fyne Ales.
