David's first SpyCam sighting and capture... and they don't get much better than this?
As mentioned on the noticeboard, two young Pine Marten, playing about round the cabin.

The final 'repair stage' of the second Lochan (after the torrential rain of a few months ago, which closed the A82 with three landslides, and broke the banks of our two Lochans) is now complete, thanks to Bobcat. A lovely job installing the new, larger overflow pipe.

Gaelic 11

S math sin! - Great! 

Ever wondered where the word ‘smashing’ came from? Etymologists might consider the Scots Gaelic phrase ‘S math sin’, which means Great! Or Terrific! Or indeed Smashing!

It is pronounced in a curiously similar way. The ‘S’ runs together with ‘Math’ to produce the sound ‘smah’ (as always the t is silenced by the h). The ‘i’ in ‘sin’ makes the ‘s’ a ‘sh’ sound, so this part is pronounced ‘shin’.

And there you have it ‘smah shin’! with the emphasis on ‘smah’

S math sin! :-)

“Proud to be a Laird”
5 of 5 stars
I was given a 1 foot square "estate" for my 60th birthday and gave one to my wife a few months later. We were able to visit our estates and thoroughly enjoyed the informative tour by volunteer Stewart Borland. My wife was given a mountain ash seedling to plant on her estate. We are 'geocachers' and had fun finding two caches hidden in the woodlands. We encountered a couple of sceptics in nearby Glencoe who considered it a "ripoff" but we can attest the small fee for the grand titles of Lord and Lady are definitely spent on the purpose claimed. And it struck us that the complainants were being a bit shallow: as my wife said to one -- apart from the effort to preserve woodlands, at least the Highland Titles venture is bringing customers to your little village and to your business!
“Fantastic experience!”
5 of 5 stars
We (4 adults) visited the Highland Titles Nature Reserve on the 14th June 2015 as we were curious about the plots 2 of us had been given as presents. We also wanted to find out a bit more about the ideology behind the scheme. We had pre booked a guided tour and were met by Stewart Borland who gave us a fantastic tour around the estate. He gave us lots of interesting information about the reserve, ideas around the conservation of it, trees and wildlife. We all felt this was a splendid way of engaging people in the conservation of places of natural beauty.
“Good day with nature”

I got the plot for my birthday and finally managed to get up to see it. Our guide David didn't just take us straight to the plot of land and left us there he took us round the area and stopped frequently to give some information on the surrounding area and the wildlife that is there. Then when we found the plot of land I got to plant a little tree, will definitely go back in the future to see the progress of it!

On my last tour round the SpyCams before I headed off I met 'the ladies' up at the top of the top hill - 6 or 7 Red Deer hinds moving off, scared by the engine of the quad bike. Sorry for quality, it shows the limitations of my wee Nikon on full zoom!

A nice capture from my last tour on Friday afternoon. The first shot through the trees was all I expected to get - they are usually shy of the buggy, but she obligingly waited for a nice clear shot before heading off to the woods!

“Perfect day, perfect place”
5 of 5 starsReviewed 30 June 2015 NEW
For my 50th birthday I was bought 10 sq feet of land at the reserve and being my birthday today I was able to break the seal and head off to Duror. We were a little early but no problems and were made to feel very welcome, quick look at where my plot was and David took us off on my adventure. The plot looked over the Loch Linne, perfect in every way. David left us to admire the view and enjoy the surroundings. Having our dog with us we were keen to explore the area and happened upon the pigs who loved having their photo taken. Then onto the manmade loch with the colourful beehives, many photos taken and plenty of time to sit and soak up the tranquillity of the surroundings. Every effort has been made to keep this area as nature intended and through a lot of hard work the invasive trees are being trimmed to give the animals a chance to thrive. We were met on our return by Stewart who was keen to show us around in the newly returned buggy, his knowledge and passion for the area was infectious. Having liked the Facebook page I can now visit the wildlife through the lens and hope to see some wildcat someday.
To finish our visit we went to see the enchanted garden full of fairies and promises of good things, then onto the waterfall where you can enjoy a picnic.
This is a wonderful place and Stewart and David are great ambassadors for the project.
