        ... feelings of uncertainty turned to concern when the GPS led us up a narrow back road, instead of continuing straight ahead to Thurso. When we were in the middle of nowhere with 200 yards to our destination, all hope dwindled. Then we saw a sign. Not a sign from God, but an actual sign: Lau-ren House, turn right. We arrived on the doorstep of a house with the most wonderful 360-degree views and Johnny Chester answered the door. Actually, it wasn't ...

I'm all for Scottish nationalism but at what cost would it have come to the people, economy, society etc. It was all a bit scary to be honest. I was all set to see the result last night but then I found out it wouldn't be revealed until the early hours of the morning, so I headed to bed only to find out the results early this morning. And ...

        ... to safety, but when it came to the quad-bike with trailer, the asphalt-layer and (especially) the road roller, the comedy became seriously funny!

        Apparently, a start button is a start button on any road-making machinery, but a go-lever is not a go-lever on a road roller. On initial activation, the go-lever seemed to engage the vibrator on the front roller. The effect on the road-roller, not to mention the concrete pier, was a wonder to behold. The ...

        ... the tomb through the about 3 foot high by 15 foot long entrance tunnel. The tunnel was positioned in such a way that on the winter solstice, the setting sun would illuminate the rear chamber. Hard to believe that these Neothic structures predate both Stonehenge and the Pyramids of Egypt! Interestingly, most of them (with the exception of the buried Skara Brae) were marked by Viking graffiti. Vikings, who raided and ...
