Aye and it tiddled down here just after I left home.

Anyway, took a few photos, only cos I promised. Thankfully most of the Touroids have left, but still a few infernal Camper Vans, who don't know what passing place signs are and their left from their right. :evil:

The beach at Achnahaird. To the left mountains, left to right, the tip of the Quinag, then Suilven, Stac P, Cul Beag and Ben More Coigach - looks different from this angle.

Went to the local Tesco in Ullapool this morning. Kids stayed in car, whilst I went in shopping. They were saying a Ninja with a Samurai sword walked past the car. I thought they were taking the michael until they showed me this tonight they they took on their phone. Strange, but true. can only think it was a Visitor as no self respecting local would dress up like that! Its like the Twilight Zone here at times.

Thanks and yes, it's a strange one. I just hope the person was in fancy dress and boarded the afternoon ferry to Stornoway.

Forgot to add, the youngest was 4 years old when he climbed Stac P. :lol:

Id get out today, take the RIB with me, but the weather looks iffy again. Not so bothered about me, but three whinging kids in the boat doesn't make for a good time - they are on holiday. :roll:
