Day out on Skye


Joels first trip to the Cuillin
Loch Bhrusda was in service from Mallaig rather than the Loch Nevis. Not a cuppa in sight :(

Invercaimbe beach again


We are having another week at Invercaimbe. The weather has been superb today, sat on a beach in Scotland the day after the clocks went back an hour, not bad.

Squat Lobster for Tea


Managed to get some squat tails from a kind fisherman who was just landing his prawns in Glenuig. I love these things and cooking them couldnt be simpler, boil for one minute and serve!

Good Bye Oldham Loop Trains


My local train line, the Oldham Loop has just seen its last train. The powers that be have decided that it would be good to turn it into a tram line, only problem is it will not open for another 3 years. They expect us to get replacement buses that will take up 3 times as long. It will be strange not hearing the 23:50 go past just before going to sleep. The picture is of a grotty train arriving late at Newhey Station. Despite its problems I will miss it.
