Seems like the heavy rain is causing much trouble and damage down south:





I feel bad for those whose houses have been washed away, I know how it feels to lose your house and lifelong home - it's awful.

Its been the wettest month here since 1910! Fortunetly our women folk use all the rain water as mixer for their buckie.

Very optimistic people (so long as the buckie flows and the English aren't about) every downpour is a chance to dance drunk in the rain. Very Happy

A bit arid but I could see it being one of the more remote locations in the White Mountains, particularly in the film-verse. study What is that picture originally? Smile

I'm not sure it was half way up a hill... Shocked But it does bear some resemblance to PJ's version. His close-in shots of streets and buildings were okay, but his long-view shots didn't work for me.

Finally a decent day, so off to, first an old castle.

[img][/img]

The Main Entrance

[img][/img]

Some of the , now very worn, detailing on the entrance arch.

[img][/img]

The Main Court

[img][/img]

Inside part of the Tower

[img][/img]

Heading Down!

[img][/img]

Below!

[img][/img]

The Vaulted Ceiling

[img][/img]

Amazing Tree at Entrance

[img][/img]

After the castle a quick trip to a lighthouse.

[img][/img]

Where we annoyed a bird who had a nest nearby.

[img][/img]

[img][/img]



Still worth it for the view across the Island of Rothesay with beyond it the mountains on Arran.

[img][/img]

An as a final picture, an epitomy of Britishness.

[img][/img]

It even works, I checked.

Can be slow with big pics but not had any trouble with the size otherwise. These I reduced and are about half the size of the originals and then uploaded to photobucket.

Fan of Time Team myself except they tend to give the impression history didn't start in the UK until the Romans turned up, despite there being some 6000 odd years or so of previous history.

Poor Eldo. When you inevitably become rich at whichever damn clever thing it is you decide to do you will just have to buy yourself a place with a proper view. Very Happy

Thanks Petty. Razz Preferably I'll find a place without power lines and illegal-firework-setting-off neighbors right outside my back window. Very Happy

Buckie mainly- but sadly that's the real world counterpart without the all important 0.00001% miruvor in it. Its much worse, it not only makes you think setting off fireworks when you have forgotten how your limbs work is a good idea, it then makes you forget you've lit them by cunningly distracting you by making you fall over sideways whilst shouting abuse at strangers and challenging them to fights.
