After Dafydd's demise (he was a regular user of the canine beach) Monty took over, and I'm amazed you haven't seen all the holes he's been digging there. I'm sure, too, I've spotted other dogs there, including Rupert (the dog, not 'he of the gorgeous legs'). Unbroken sand? Not when Monty's there! And please, no makeovers!

The glorious stretch of unbroken sand has lain unused for months now, after RobbieJohnDo got in intermittent touch with his inner equine.My own suggestion for who to cut the dalmatian-spotted ribbon is of course John Noakes.

And the dirt is gone!"?Actually, thinking of that tagline...If the stuff is explosive, shouldn't it have a few more warning labels on it? And surely they can employ someone to advertise it who doesn't presume his entire audience is stone deaf...Meanwhile, changing subject, just came across pics of this road sign in Drumnadrochit...
