Just some odds and ends

Been quite busy of late so not much stuff to report. The geology trips for my Bunessan class are finished now - many thanks to all of you - hope you got something out of it. I certainly enjoyed showing you around! There are acouple of pics just coming up

Also, there was a serious contrast in the weather between Friday and Saturday. The rain on Friday was something else - I had to travel down to Iona for the day and the journey was far from pleasant - parts of the road were seriosuly flooded..

Really bad news for the Bunessan Show. Afterwards it was easy to see that the show field was a mud bath.

But on Saturday afternoon, the weather was great - I was working most of the day but had a quick sprint down to Loch Buie for a wander. Pics to follow.

See y'all soon

PS: Barney, sorry to have missed you - I was away all that day. Maybe next year!


Basalt Columns in Ulva, two weeks ago - one of the field trips


A granite boulder looking rather out of place - ship ballast maybe? Who knows?

Serious amounts of water pouring off the hills above Loch Sguabain on Friday morning


On Saturday, Ben Buie from near Moy Castle

Also near Loch Buie is this rock which is said to look a bit like Queen Victoria in profile.
