We are here in a pub car park between St Mary’s Loch and the Loch of Lowes. It is a beautiful place. Plenty of local dogs for my two to play with. There was a bit of snapping and snarling when we first arrived but they are happily chasing each other , sniffing sniffs and sampling the Loch water now. The Tibbie Shiels seems, on first acquaintance, to be fine. It sells beer and is reasonably priced. There is a wedding on the shore of the Loch tomorrow, a stag party here tonight and a Motorcycle Club are just arriving. The Landlord requested that I keep the dogs in the van between two and four. He is stressed, half his camping field is flooded there is only one road in. He has five dogs whose whereabouts vary. I can envisage all five arriving to see a lass in a posh white frock!
I’m not sure how long I’m going to stop here and less convinced this weather will hold so I thought I'd better get a couple of shots in the bag. Not an arduous task it was all of a couple of hundred yards. The dogs don’t need a walk having had an hour chasing round with the local canines they are sleeping.
I had a senior moment today and forgot to stop in Selkirk for money, food, fags and Bells. There were diversion signs everywhere as the A780…I think it is…..Is closed by a landslip or flood between here and Moffat. No Toffees for Mark this trip. It’s a forty mile round trip to Selkirk for me in the morning. I’ll have to get used to Scotland again. Make lists and remember what I have done with the list.
Have a great weekend. I’ll do my best.
