:)// Thought you might like to see the area around my other house. :)P
These pictures were taken last September, when we retreated there to recover from the sad death of our youngest son, Alex, whom was only 36 hours old.... :('



Passing through Glasgow at rush hour!!

Driving through Glen Coe

Our village

Our Scottish home

View from the front of the house

View from the top of the garden

Our local beach, at Morar


Our local train service, the Jacobite


The last 2 views shown our nearest town, Arisaig. (POP 88!!) Blink and you will miss it!!! :lol:

Britains shortest river, The Morar, complete with hydro electric power station that supplies our electricity

Glenfinnian Viaduct, where they film the train sequences for Harry Potter movies.



The last 3 pictures show the nearest town, Mallaig, POP 175!!! :lol:

This last picture was taken just 4 minutes before Alex died :(' :doh:
Many thanks for looking, Camusdarrach.
Still struggling to get the size of the picture correct :/:/ :doh: :doh:

Yes I have read about Alex and it deeply saddened me. I wish that there were some way to ease the pain that you and your wife must be dealing with. Please know that we are all here for you if you ever want to talk. They say that everything happens for a reason but I can't and never will be able to understand when things like this happen. Please know that Alex is still with you and will always be with you in your heart.

Thanks for sharing the BEAUTIFUL pictures of your home! Being of Scottish heritage, they are of particular interest.

The picture of little Alex is especially poignant and touching...

why, thank you.
It's lovely up there, and who knows, bookings may well be accepted!!! ;)
If anybody has a bit of free time, have a look at the website of our local newspaper there, it's an A4 sized paper that is issued once a month, and has some good articles showing life up there, and how the pace of life is so different to everywhere else!

it's well worth a glance, and I'm ready for the sarcastic comments!!! ;)

Looks very nice. When we were kids we'd go to my Aunt & Uncle's place pretty much every year for a holiday. They lived in a place called Lesmahagow (Not sure if that's spelt correctly). Which was South of Glasgow, the nearest town was Hamilton if I'm correct.

Always a bit of an adventure 'cos we'd always leave home (S.E.London) at about 2 a.m, and my Dad would get us up there by about 10/11 depending on wee breaks! :lol:

Those pictures are awesome. They remind of the movie Local Hero.

I'm so sorry about Alex, but you still have a wonderful family. Thanks for sharing.

Whats suprising, though, is they could have made the entire film in one area, and have saved the trek to the other side of Scotland>>>> -\/- -\/- :)

Thanks, BigChris, so you know Lesmahagow, quite a nice town, once spent the night there a few years back ( In my Arctic Truck driving days) when the old A74 become blocked with 6' of snow. :shock2:
Must admit, we always looked forward to reaching that town when we headed northwards up the A74, it was the real first sign of civilisation after many miles of barran, windswept moorland!! ;) :)

Do you know/Have you been to Cramond castle? I think we went there one year. It's near Edinburgh i believe (Or certainly on the east coast anyway)

I'm wondering if i can stake a claim as Crammond is my surname. :)

Wow...I'm literally shocked that this is the same area. And I thought it only reminded me of that movie (one of my favorite movies)!
