Thanks for the kind comments about the pics, it's appreciated.

Could it not be a seal with just one eye closed LR, as opposed to having a full blown snoring session :D
I have to admit that I can't quite make out the seal shape, but I'm getting on a bit now, and the old eyes are dimming quite a bit!

Don't know the the Garlic name of the location I got the photo of the burn Crowth :? Best to just say its that wee burn up where the picnic table is. I got soaked to the knees while getting one or two others that same day as I hadn't thought to bring my wellies. Unlike you surfing dudes that pack the wellies to stand in the sea at Muasdale :D

Just a Nokia phone one Ninja :D

I have heard it said however, that the Sony Ericson ones are better :D

OK, you're right! It is still the old wind up one that runs on the carbon they used to put in Miners Helmet Lamps :(

If it was a burn by a small white cottage,then it would have been Grogport Cottage.

No its not that one LR. I think they call the area it is situated in Oak Wood Walk. The picnic table is off road ( a 4X4 picnic table?) and there is a bridge just short of it. Or is that just a short bridge?
I'm a local, and don't know the name :oops:

Don't worry about it, PR. I got lost on the Beinn Ghuilean walk a couple of weeks ago :oops:

This is the place you're on about...........

Everybody heard about you getting lost Crowth :shock:
I was told it was on Scotland Today 2 or 3 days later.

That is the very place I was at. Well not right at the sign, but close :D

Was that taken tonight, Pete? It's a pretty awesome shot.

Yes, it was also featured in the Yorkshire Evening Post under the headline 'Leeds man lost in the wilds of Scotland, fears for his wallet grow'.

Well, today I finally made it up into the forest around Beinn Ghuilean. Mostly thanks to the advice and directions of SCD :D

Here's a couple of shots I took along the way................

I was doing marvellously until this happened.............

I'll post the rest later when I've decided which thread they should be under.
