Have you been to Scotland

Hi there forum members.

An odd question I know - but I will explain.

I used to live in a place called Oykel Bridge up in Ross & Cromarty,not far from Ullapool ,when I was a wee lad. I have never been back. My father who worked in the Dunray facility,moved us all to South Wales , just after I passed my 13+ exams. He thought we would have more opportunity in the South. I remember river rafting , fishing for salmon and trout ( I would spend all day at the lakes ) close to Oykel Bridge and in the summer I would help out with sheep shearing. Many fond memories but sadly they are clouded by the passage of time.

Have any members been to this area,and if so would any of you have any pics available for me to see on the forum.

A long shot I know - but if you don't ask you don't get

Thank you

Re: Have you been to Scotland

There will be Scottish members who can probably give you a better answer, but I've been there... Not precisely the location you ask about, but only about 1 miles north is a place called Elphin where I spent a wonderful week a couple of years ago

It was in the main a caving and geology trip so most of my pictures are of rocks, but I did manage a few views ..

Hope they are sufficiently close to evoke memories

Ben More Coigach - very poorly stitched panorama - one of the 1st I ever did and I must try again

This was the view from our cottage window - also a pano

I liked it so much I used the central image and removed the cottage and use this as my desktop at home

I've added a couple more in my gallery, but I have to admit one was taken with the wifes Panasonic Lumix... Nice bridge camera really, but she prefers my Oly now as it has better colours.

My Kit (OK I'm a hoarder...)
4/3 E500, E510, E30 + 35macro, 50macro, 7-14, 11-22, 14-45 (x2), 14-54, 40-150 (both types), 50-200, 70-300, 50-500,

The Boss (Mrs Shenstone) E620, EM10-II, 14-41Ez, 40-150R, 9 cap and whatever she can nick from me when she wants it
