I was in Dumfries & Galoway during a lighthouse open weekend. Plus I am a Member of the Association of Lighthouse Keepers. I've visited many lighthouses in Scotland and the view from Mull of Galloway is the finest. Southerness Golf Course is the windiest I've ever played!

my those roads are quiet.

Thanks! Recently moved to South Wales. Love it here, but miss the Scottish landscapes. Ian

My best friend visits New Hampshire every year for his holidays; says it's lovely. He and his wife are now in good jobs, but he says if he'd known about NH years ago he'd have emigrated like a shot. I now live in Usk, in South Wales, but my heart too is in the Highlands. I was brought up in London, but my mother was from Isle of Skye and we had a holiday home in Tighnabruaich since I was two. I relocated to Scotland - Edinburgh, Tighnabruaich then Greenock - over thirty years ago. Last year I married my first girlfriend (We'd separated 34 years previously!); as she has three grown-up daughters in Wales it seemed sensible to settle down here. The weather's much, MUCH better too. Ian

Hi Don! I'm coming to Vancouver and the Yukon next year, following in the footsteps of the poet Robert W Service. I was looking for photos of the area, and was surprised to see on your site a picture of San Giovanni Rotondo. I was there a couple of years ago; went all over the south of Italy. I comment because San Giovanni isn't really on the tourist route so it's unusual on Panoramio. Cheers! Ian

Haunting and beautiful. It must have been quite a storm if it came ashore! Thank you.

Oo-er! My wife was planning to drive from Usk to Golwern today, to have lunch with friends. Having seen your photos, she's thinking again! Ian

I was on the same train in May 2007, not awfully sure of the date, but it was a very damp and grey Scots misty day! A friend and I stayed B&b in Mallaig a coupla nights. The engine pulling your train was probably this one, am i correct Ian @ Wilmar??

Your photo is well worth getting a sooty face for, well done!!
