Thanks mate, as you can see the weather wasn't very good, a cold bleak miserable morning but picked up for about an hour later on.

Prefer the honesty of a bleak day rather than the postcardy sh!te they feed to tourists  
Summer happens late November for 18 hours it saves on dissapointed wee Japanese sonsies... They could be from Amerikay but thon north wind makes every cnut look the same.

cairns overlooking loch loyne  

In Scotland, it is traditional to carry a stone up from the bottom of a hill to place on a cairn at its top. In such a fashion, cairns would grow ever larger. An old Scottish Gaelic blessing is Cuiridh mi clach air do chrn, "I'll put a stone on your cairn". In Highland folklore it is believed that the Highland Clans, before they fought in a battle, each man would place a stone in a pile. Those who survived the battle returned and removed a stone from the pile. The stones that remained were built into a cairn to honour the dead




Commando Monument
The Commando Memorial is a Category A listed monument in Scotland, dedicated to the men of the original British Commando Forces raised during World War II. Situated around a mile from Spean Bridge village, it overlooks the training areas of the Commando Training Depot established in 1942 at Achnacarry Castle. Unveiled in 1952 by the Queen Mother, it has become one of Scotland's best-known monuments, both as a war memorial and as a tourist attraction offering views of Ben Nevis and Aonach Mr.

Norrie, noticed the yachts in the windows and the rain was pissing down. These taken around 7-30pm with the light failing., the apartments look brilliant and the building has a close at the side quite surprised at that.
