Ferns ,Brambles and a wee secret




On the A835 south of Ullapool just as you get to the foot of Beinn Eildeach you will see a wee gate hidden on the left.

Take the time to stop and i tell you it will be a stop you will remember forever…

I have been to this wee hidden path many times and each time i leave with a huge smile and ready to face the world again.

Jump the rusty old gate and you will see a path leading off to the right , take it and quickly you will be faced with a wall ten feet and more tall , Ferns and brambles seem to block all and any attempt to carry on .

But push on and slowly the path will open but be ready to be scratched by brambles as if alive trying all in their power to stop you reaching the SECRET of the wee path .
Every few steps you will be tripped up and as you make your way further and further in the  light from the sun will fade to nothing .
Don’t be scared and take a wee tip get doon on your knees and the path will unfold before you , eventually you will come to a tree with branches reaching oot and all touching the ground , pull one back and there you will see

Seals at play anything from a single one to 7 , 10 or more and if you emerge gently they will watch you approach but then carry on 
To watch seals at play truly a wonderful gift …

This is the latest wee song from oor friend Johnny hope you enjoy :

Heya Friends - here's a sneak preview of a song i'm putting into the 'Song Writing Contest' on the 'Scotland Is Alive With Music' page on Facebook. The song has to convey that idea somehow. My song is called 'The Lion Beneath The Stars.' You'll find it on the link here to iSound, which i've only just opened, just to try the format out. So, there's no pics of us there or any p.r. nonsense. Anyway, hope uz enjoy the song. It's dedicated to the memory of the late Gerry MacGregor. R.I.P. Feedback is welcome.Thanks to Benny Gallacher, who promoted the contest early on & brought it to my attention. ;-) xoxo

Getting the old tin can up and over the mountain roads..










With the moon streaming a golden glow on the loch the old truck steadily clocking up the miles ,all is well.

Then ahead the site of the road seemingly too disappear into the clouds sends a wee shudder though all in the old tin can .



with a gentle tap on the dash to reassure the old wagon that she can do it we head at maximum speed ( well 46mph) confident that all will be ok .



Then as the road begins to climb the gears are engaged first 4th and all to soon we are doon to 2nd but quickly she settles in and begins the climb . a quick glance to the right and far far below is the beach we had spend the night . turning back to the road i could see it climb even steeper .

I turned to Mel, Dylan and Custard all were sitting wide eyed . Mels mouth wide open as if locked in mid sentence even the dogs seem to have their paws crossed and they also sat bolt upright and mouths wide open tongue’s dangling in fear .

But as so many times before the old tin can climbed and climbed until the summit came into view and at last i was able to ease back the throttle and free wheel a while,

temp dropping and the view ahead the reward for the effort then just as we all started to smile again and chatter resumed the site roon the next corner

plunged all in the can to silence . except for the occasional “ SHITE, SHITE “



The road plunging doon and doon , quickly i engaged 2nd gear and gingerly made oor way doon the CLIFF .

with only the odd we squeek for the front right brake ( need to re-grease it )

At the bottom i pulled in a checked all was ok , for the next mile or so nothing was said until i found a wee layby to pull in for the night..



When i got the step doon and went inside the cats inside their baskets had rolled back against the wall. the look i got from both them at the indignity of having to travel upside doon with their food dishes as hats and the water bowls having emptied their contents in they bed .was priceless and with an angry swish of their tails they both headed past me heads held high ignoring me as they made their way oot the door .

A few minutes later though and they were back both rubbing up aside my leg happy at their new home ..



so all at the hovel is harmony again..

Well until the next wee journey ..



love and light ..

SONG WRITING COMPETITION

SONG WRITING COMPETITION

The idea?
To write and record a very high quality song that best reflects the talent
that we have here in Scotland.
Participants MUST be Members of the Scotland Is Alive With Music (SIAWM) Group.
The song should focus on exhibiting/capturing a feel for Scotland and its musical heritage.
So?
The song title can be anything and need not be entitled "Scotland Is Alive
With Music" nor feature these words (grouped in this way) in the
lyrics. It would be great though, if the song title and/or lyrics did support the concept of Scotland being (as it is) alive with music.
All entrants must write a song, put music to it, record it (the recording
can be done in a bedroom if need be) and submit the recorded composition to SIAWM as a playable file.
We're in the process of pulling together a team of "judges", who will select
the 6 compositions that they consider to be best contenders for possibly winning.
These 6 compositions will then be published through SIAWM and a voting system established.
Members of the Scotland Is Alive With Music Group will be allowed to vote
and the winning song will be the one with the most votes.
In the very unlikely event of a dead heat the Founder of Scotland Is Alive With Music will have the deciding vote.
The winning entry will win 4 hours of recording time at a high quality recording studio (mastering will be done by their personnel).
The finished "product" will then get the full support of SIAWM in its promotion to the public.

The timetable?

* ALL who intend to participate should intimate that intention to SIAWM by
e-mail BEFORE submitting their composition (e-mail address below).

* All entries to be attached to an e-mail and sent to gee_580@yahoo.co.uk

* Submissions to be made between midnight August 8 and midnight September 30.

* "Best 6" as decided by the "judging panel" will be announced midnight 9 October.

* Voting by SIAWM Members will commence from midnight 9 October and continue until
midnight 6 November

* Winning entry will be announced on the SIAWM Page (PLEASE NOTE that this is the Page) NOT the Group no later than midnight 14 October.
To be informed of the announcement, members of SIAWM will need to have "liked" the SIAWM Page.
Here is the link to the SIAWM Page :
http://www.facebook.com/pa​ges/Scotland-Is-Alive-With​-Music/102616526491597

* Winning composition will be allocated the 4 hours of recording time with the intention of the finished "product" being available for loading to appropriate Internet sites (eg. Reverbnation, Soundcloud, iTunes, etc) for purposes of selling.

* If all goes well, it would the intention of starting the publicity "machine" no later than 1 November.

* ALL known radio stations, contactable radio presenters, community radio stations, Internet "broadcasters", local and national press, TV broadcasters and Uncle Tom Cobbly and all will be made aware of the composition.

* Other "(Country) Is Alive With Music" Group members will be made aware of the composition.

THE HOPE?

That we produce a significantly popular composition that puts the composer and Scotland on the map before the end of the year.

Eat your heart out X Factor?

Who knows?

The cost of motoring

Wow the cost of motoring, the price for 2 rear number plates could
keep us in grub for a week. Sorted though MEL has croched a pair . Ah
the simple life

Spending the day insulating the truck roof and making a few cupboards and hopefully a couple of nestboxes for sale along the road.

Andy the Daft Hermit lives 45 minutes outside Inverness with his wife Mel in an old bus parked in a layby. This current home of theirs is the longest they have ever stayed in one spot. “I’ve been travelling now 25 years,” said Andy Lowe. “Mel’s been travelling 15. One of the reasons we’ve come and stayed up here is because of Mel’s health. I wanted to bring her to the mountains for fresh air and clean water and just a slower pace of life.” Mel has had breast cancer twice, skin cancer once, and for three years believed she had bone cancer after being wrongly diagnosed. Andy’s belief in the restorative powers of the north made them pack up ‘The Black Bus’ that they live in and cross the border into Scotland. New Highland home for hermit couple Andy and Mel “I think we both believe in trying to get to a more simple way of life,” said Andy, “but it’s strange for us because we are sort of hermits, or we like to live separate, but it’s not being anti-social… it’s just the way we are that allows us to be creative.” Andy first began travelling when he left the army. Fed up with bureaucracy he packed a rucksack and left for France and has been travelling ever since. By investing any money the couple have earned into solar panels and wind generators they now live a self-sustaining existence, without electric bills, and collect rain water “straight from Heaven”. “It’s not easy,” said Mel. “There might be time when there might not be enough facilities around, but you always find a way, you know?” Rather than rejecting technology, Andy blogs about his travels online and collaborates with artists from around the world via his ‘Scratchy Heid Film Studio’, which he runs from a static trailer next to the couple’s bus. He explained his philosophy: “My belief is that if you can go through life and you drop dead and you’ve got a balance there that slightly outweighs the good than the bad, you’ve done alright. “Yesterday, with what Mel’s been through with the cancer and all that, I had a woman on one of my sites there that thanked me for the writing, for the positive things, and to me that’s worth everything. You can keep your millions, we’re not interested. That is what we do.” To check out Andy’s artwork and video projects check out his website. MORE FROM THE NORTH
