Living a simple green life in our old truck in the Scottish mountains


.Living a simple life here in the Scottish mountains.

Track NOT I bye our friend Sally Hope
( links to her at the foot of the page)

Since leaving the army , i have been on the road living in buses .trucks. benders and sometimes the gutter.

after 25 years wandering it seems we have come to a stop here at Loch Droma where we get to live a simple green life amid the mountains.
I now enjoy running my wee studio where i get to share my tales , films etc

with the help of both solar and wind power we are free from energy bills and with the abundance of fresh water we are free from water bills

Living in an old truck in the Scottish highlands ( The Hovel) OFF GRID



Love and light from the wee rusty tin can here in the Scottish highlands............ Alba gu brath

The night watchman

THE NIGHT WATCHMAN

The hum from the cooling system echoed throughout the building a constant –50c had to be maintained at all cost.

Earnest leaned across the table to check the time on his old clock .

Less than an hour of his shift left .

A wee look of worry etched across his face that in an hour he would be finished at warehouse No10

Thinking back to when he had first started at the job when he was 20 , he could never have imagined that at 90 he would still be there . over the 70 years huge changes had happened within the building least of all its sheer size . from a single unit it had expanded to cover upwards of 60 football fields and this was only one of many warehouses dotted across the globe .

Retirement in less than an hour …..

He had never really got used to the fact that he was the only one in this huge building , long ago all the others had been replaced by robots of all sizes and shapes , every thing run by computers meant that the building seemed alive but had no soul.

A sudden clatter announced another order coming in for some spare part or other ,Fired all the robots up to fill it .

from all the corners of the warehouse they seemed to come alive and rushed to fill the parts order in the quickest time possible .

Like some long ago ballet they gracefully filled the trays and when the order was complete and on the outward conveyor belt, everything shut doon and the silence returned to the huge warehouse

The only noise the clatter of the air conditioner .

A quick glance at the clock and he could see that he had less than 40mins left , just then a report on the radio stated

* A couple had been found trying to bury their loved one in a grave in the woods north of London “

Since 2015 it had been illegal to bury or dispose of bodies in any way other than them being taken of to be recycled .

From the radio ,screams as the couple where taken from the van to the inside of the police station.

people were screaming “selfish bastards “, “who do you think you are” , “scum” the noise just got louder and louder until the couple were taken through the door . only then did the crowd settle down.

Earnest turned to the radio to turn if off , Knowing what was coming he had heard it many times in his life , The Couple would be inside and being charged and within the hour they would be taken outside and shot , their bodies sent of to be recycled ….

He was glad that at 90 he would be able to head to the Scottish highlands and the wee cottage he had bought , a quieter life away from the constant noise and worse of the modern way of life

He got up from his desk and headed of on his final walk around the warehouse . the bunch of keys clipped to his belt his cap placed firmly on his head he set off.

At the far end of the warehouse was the parts delivery hall , a place he had long ago refused to enter , walking passed the door he heard the whir of the machines ..

Earnest got back to his desk at a little passed 06.58.am . he picked up his box will all his stuff and turned to the door and the clocking off machine .

Running the piece of plastic across the screen a voice said “ WELL DONE EARNEST TODAY IS YOUR LAST DAY “ and happily announced “ ENJOY YOUR RETIREMENT “.

Before the last word had been said EARNEST clutched his heart and fell down, close to death the plastic time card fell from his hand and lay on the floor ..

His last thought one of regret that he couldn’t afford one of the parts here and instead had to go to the “ WE BUY ANY BODY STORE” but at the time that was all he could afford and the heart had come with a 60 year warranty since then of course the company and closed .

From the far end of the warehouse he watched as a machine glided its way towards him

With a beep, beep as it reversed

an arm reached out and gathered him, placing his dead body on the platform . the warning sirens shut of as it headed hurriedly back to the parts delivery hall.

When news reached the company that Earnest had died , a few clicks on a screen and his job was filled by the DXS2 a new robot from CHINA

The guy at the screen turned to his boss and said “ at last the human body parts recycling warehouse could be fully automated now *

The last Flight

Eagle the shame of man

From his nest high up on the south facing cliff an eagle watches as the sun rises in the east, slowly at first as if unsure it will make it up an over the mountain top.
He had lived many years in these glens and mountains distant memories of his first tentative flight out and over the heather moorland far below.
The early morning mist had receded grudgingly to the west and Ullapool far off
today was going to be a good day for the hunt
by 11.00 0clock the sun was beating down the skies were a blue of near perfection
He leaned forward on the nest and with one final look at the chicks gently rolled out and over the cliff edge .
Falling 10 feet then 20 he tumbled to the earth far below
but this master of the skies was playing with the air as a champion boxer toys with an opponent he knows he has mastered.
As the speed increased he gently unfurls one wing then the other and dips to his right and away from the cliff edge
The air rushed up and filled the full length of the wings..
Then all below stand in awe and look up at the master of the Scottish highland skies his full wingspan 6 feet and more .
His feathers golden ,his eyes a deep and knowing black .
A loud call that sets of across the distant glens that all Scots know .
To me as a scot whenever i have been away from Scotland ,the two things that would bring a tear to my eye and a longing to be home.
The sound of the bagpipes and the call of the Eagle .
He set of across the glen to one of his favourite places to hunt

Passing over the river he swooped round sure he had spotted something to the edge of the river
letting the air escape from his wings he glided slowly downward till he was certain
A rabbit lay across a post an EASY meal on this sunny highland day ..

With yet another call ,this time to his partner high up in the nest to let her know he had found some food ..

After a couple of mouth fulls of fresh meat he grasped the rabbit tightly in his mighty talons and leapt into the air ,happy that his family would feed well today

A few powerful beats from his wings and within seconds he was soaring in an ever increasing circle gaining height faster and faster ,until he had enough height to simply soar to the cliff nest and his family ..
The calls between the family echoed out across the mountains all excited at the thought of the meal
He dipped his wing and headed to the nest
WHEN a pain the like he had never felt shot out and quickly enveloped his whole body ,unsure what was happening he struggled to stay in flight but then more pain filled his body until he lost control of his prey that plummeted to the ground .

He struggled to fly but with total loss of all his muscles his wings folded in a twisted wrap around his body
He called in desperation to his partner a scream this time
no magical call
simply pain and fear .

Then ,and no matter how hard he tried to stop it
the plunge to the ground and death began ..
A final call was quickly followed by a sound i hope to never hear ever again as long as i live ..
The Golden eagle lay on the ground his wings and legs at strange angles every bone has been smashed and a tiny whimper from him said he still tried to battle the poison within ..
High in the cliff the female darted from her nest and dash across the sky soon found her by his side ..
I watched as the female nudged him and called
but i could see his eyes had closed the poison had WON.
For the rest of the day and into the night the female let out call after call to her partner but as the sun rose in the morning she knew he had gone and with the chicks calling for food she had no choice she had to go
so with a final SCREAM to MAN she grabbed the rabbit and headed to the nest .

..May you continue to soar my friend safe and secure away from man

Thoughts of the Dafthermit:

To me a wee daft fat bald git who lives in an old bus

The person and people that do this to OUR Golden Eagles

should be dragged to the square in Inverness on a Saturday night

Their balls should be cut off dipped in poison and stuffed down their throats
and finally the talons from the eagle should be rammed up their arse

peace and light .

Second wind genny fitted to the hovel

My " FAITH " Comes from a spring flower breaking the soil the rush of the wind and the flow of the burn . NOT for me GOD ......

A pill that cures all !!

As the news from the radio announced that after years of research . A
pill that cures all human disease has been discovered. Within 6 months
it will be available to all for less than £1 . What cost to the planet
this latest human discovery ?. To my mind it would at first seem like
a dream come true ,but rapidly descend into truly a living nightmare.

Reforesting Scotland - A thousand huts - campaign to promote hutting culture Reforesting Scotland - A thousand huts - campaign to promote hutting culture

www.thousandhuts.org

http://on.fb.me/thousandhuts

Twitter @thousandhuts

A Thousand Huts is a Reforesting Scotland campaign centred around the idea of the hut as a place, an experience, an endeavour, an ideal for all to enjoy. In contrast to many other European countries, Scotland has a modest historic tradition of hutting, whilst in Nordic nations hutting is well established as a way of life.

Building huts with local timber can revive skills that all rural communities once took for granted and strengthen community resilience.

In Scotland, hutting is predominantly associated with a working class movement that developed early in the 20th century when small holiday huts began to be built on land close to Scotland's main industrial cities. The best known of these sites is at Carbeth in Stirlingshire. Hutters in Scotland can be characterised as belonging to a number of groups:

  • Traditional hutters in hutting "colonies".
  • Individual hutters often seeking a quiet retreat.
  • Alternative homes (Lunga etc and those who live in huts or dwellings of uncertain status).
  • Allotmenteers (urban hutters).

A Huts and Hutters in Scotland research study carried out in 2000 by the Scottish Executive identified a number of structural weaknesses in the sustainability of traditional hutting including an ageing population and poor legal safeguards. (See Huts and Hutters in Scotland, Scottish Executive Central Research Unit, 2000.)

What we're about

The aim of A Thousand Huts campaign is to promote huts and hutting - the building and enjoyment of simple structures (usually wooden) for living, working and recreation in the countryside. This will be achieved by securing a change of culture and attitude and reform of the law so as to permit those who wish to build huts and pursue hutting to do so freely and within the law.

A Thousand Huts will work with a wide range of organisations to deliver change in a number of areas, some of which will take time (e.g. legal, planning etc). Our campaign will focus on the following areas of activity:

Raising awareness of huts and hutting

1. Research and publish material on the Scottish history and culture of huts and hutting, in the context of the European tradition.
2. Research and document current state and extent of traditional hutting.
3. Develop www.thousandhuts.org and Twitter and Facebook campaigns.
4. Curate exhibitions of huts and hutting.

Huts, hutting and sustainable rural development

5. Encourage urban and rural community, youth and cultural groups to build and use more huts in the countryside.
6. Work with landowners to develop woodland hutting communities and/or hutting retreats for people who don't own land.
7. Develop models of legal land tenure structures to facilitate the expansion of hutting and promote the benefits of hutting as a way of stimulating the rural economy.
8. Develop, organise and promote good hut design and building techniques.

Huts legislation and hutters' rights

9. Initiate and support the establishment of a Scottish Federation of Hutters.
10. Lobby for proper legal protection against eviction for existing hutters.
11. Publish a report on the laws and planning regulations surrounding hutting in different European countries.
12. Lobby for a change in planning legislation to create a "hutting consent" and a new building class of "hut" within building regulations.

Huts news

Campaign launch: 15 June 2011, Edinburgh, 930am-430pm.

Hut-Building course at Falkland Centre for Stewardship: 13-19 August 2011.

Loopy scarves by oor friend frog

 Loopy scarves

Beautiful Hand Made Scarves For All Occasions



Loopy Green. Having spent half my childhood in Ireland, green happens to be one of my favourite colours and this scarf will brighten up any outfit. So, how about bringing out the Irish in you and wearing this wonderful colour. Red complements green and you can also wear it with blue, yellow, purple and orange!




Loopy Multi Pink Sorbet. This scarf is a beauty. It reminds me of strawberry sorbet with its gorgeous rich shades. It would add a lovely finishing touch to any outfit. Again, this scarf would brighten up any jacket or coat and if you are a lover of more shades pink, this one is definitely for you.





Loopy Rose. This scarf is a lovely light shade of pink. It’s very subtle and looks great with most colours. If you are a lover of the lighter shades of pink, like me, you’ll like this one. Again, this scarf would brighten up any jacket or coat.









Loopy Multi Orange Blast. This scarf is definitely one that will stand out! The rich mix of colours like purple, orange and a darkish pink all blend together beautifully. Fabulous for those who love dark colours. This scarf will certainly brighten up any jacket or coat.




Loopy Tutti Frutti. This scarf is another beauty for standing out! I personally loved this one when I first made it as it looks so much better when it’s completed rather than being a ball of wool! It seriously stands out. All the wonderful colours come shining through and there’s really a beautiful rich mix of colours in this one. You will certainly shine amongst your friends.

why not pop over and see her other work at LOOPY SCARVES

The eternal cycle

Sitting at the river today. Cloud drapped over and doon the
surrounding mountains.
Watching the water barrel gurgle and fill gently.
To be part and close to the eternal cycle that is the journey the true

From the right

As the car pulled up the front wheels inches from a fallen tree.
The window opened. letting the rain scream in through on the back of a
howl of wind.
An object on the hill moved slowly at first but quickly picked up
speed till it hit the door and began to spin in the puddle.
Coming to a rest the eyes looked up WHEN..

Time,health and focus.

Another old lesson revisited.. I believe in the old saying " if you
want something done do it yourself " .
Listening to a radio or tv programe can change your life. In the last
few months two things stand out for me . Colin Norris a nurse accused
of murder , and who i believe to be innocent.
And the other
Moment that struck my heart reports from the cotton fields of India
and the child slaves. What to do ? The first question asked. Each of
us are different to me i know that . TIME HEALTH AND FOCUS. Are the
important keys . You can end up bogged down naesayers etc to the point
that the initial focus is lost. Time on so many levels is so important
be it the kid in the field or the guy in a prison cell. So my answer
is to find a way that works. At 50+ i have seen things happen that you
can't believe is still happening in the 21st century. Talk talk and no
action is the reason. Well with the tech now it is possible to make
change happen. Indeed this old fart thinks for me this is the way to
help. I live a simple happy life and so as i said at the start " if
you want a job doing, do it yourself." love and light

I have come up with my campaign against Tesco for using child slavery in the Indian cotton fields in the CHEAP clothes we buy at their stores, Although i wanted to do a film i reckon it will take to much effort to get all the people needed together . So now and keeping to the simple is best policy

I am ordering 500 cards with the words

THIS GARMENT HAS BEEN BROUGHT TO YOU ON THE BACKS OF CHILD SLAVERY

A poem to Colin Norris by our friend Andy from Leeds

Andrew Jonathan Daniels posted on Free Colin Norris's Wall.

"Lonely cell
I think of you
In that lonely cell
Day and night
I wish you well
My friend you did nothing wrong
Fight and keep your spirit strong
I think of you
In that lonely cell
And words and stories
You can tell
Keep your inspiration bright
Friends will send you love and light
I think of you
In that lonely cell
Not exactly
A hotel
But keep the smile on your face
We know the law is a disgrace
I think of you
In that lonely cell
Must be like
A living hell
Sometime soon you’ll know release
Your heart and mind will be at peace
"

A wee film about us on STVs the HOUR SHOW click on STV logo to see the film
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
