For all you (very) keen golfers out three. I've passed this a few times on the train travelling up to Aberdeen to visit family - mountain goats would have trouble getting around it! Interestingly a geological fault that splits Scotland east to west runs through it, North sea on one side train line on the other and deep gorges to hit over all along it.

Stonehaven Golf Club lies on the Braes of Cowne overlooking the North Sea and is located about an easy 15 mile drive south from Aberdeen. As you will see, it is played along the edge of cliffs that fall dramatically into the sea. You'll be playing over deep gorges, onto tilted fairways, up and down steep hills and even over a bomb crater! (It seems that during the Second World War a German pilot on his way home wanted to rid his aircraft of some weight, so he dropped a bomb on the golf course. The crater, called "Hitler's bunker," comes into play between the first and second fairways.)

Barnacle geese follow microlight pilot Christian Moullec, who hand-reared them and now see him as their mother.

Thanks Mike,
They are really unusual clouds normally found above mountains. I've not been fortunate enough to see them myself.

Brilliant !

I had an idea a couple of years for a slightly similar way of gathering wasted energy in a completely different setting, but not having any grounding (pun not intended) in electrical engineering that's all it will probably ever be :-(

Picture tour of the 2012 olympic venues, I'm hoping to have relocated outside of London (hopefully back home to Scotland) long before they start - just going to cause massive disruption to Londoners travel and be a general pain in the posterior not to mention the huge costs when this f***ing tory government are cutting spending on everything else!

Get ready for the journalists turning this in to a major panic in the next day or two. By the end of the 1st week of Jan they'll be talking pandemic and apocalyptic outcomes in the next couple of months - IF it becomes transferable via airborne particles, but they'll have the "if" in such small print that you'll not be able to see it !

I was in Micheldever for an job interview the other day & couldn't find where I was meant to be. I went in to MTS to ask for directions & the folk couldn't have been more helpful. One of them (I never got his name) took me in a drive about Micheldever & Micheldever Station till we found the place. I really do owe them a debt of gratitude - they did this for no charge at all & with no prospect of getting any business - just decent honest helpful people - really restored my faith in humanity. If I do eventually move to this area & buy a car there's no doubt where I'll be using for any car related services. Great bunch of guys & I wish them all the best for the future. Thank you.
