Jill and Plunky have been in the Isle of Skye today and have been on an excursion...no news yet. I presume Jill survived her intimate dinner with Christian(or did she say he was a Christian?? ;) :lol: ) last night.

I wonder did their conversation go something like this?

Jill and Plunky are in Lerwick today and are doing a tour. Yesterday thetyhad a very enjoyable tour of Skye,but lack of signal stopped Jill reporting back last night. Coincidentally, I was reading about one of the idiosyncrasies of Scotish Highlands, which is the existence of "Bothies". Apparently there are about 100 of these still available in Scotland,at least one of which is on the Isle of Skye. For anyone who is unaware of these buildings,they are a residue from the days when Scottish sheep farmers lived in the more remote areas near their flocks. Most were abandoned,as a result of better access by road and vehicles in the last century. They are now available, free of charge, to any hikers/walkers who may want/need shelter overnight. They are left unlocked,and seemingly can be a source of interesting encounters with strangers...who may appear unexpectedly just after you have settled in. It sounds almost as exciting as the first night on a cruise when you go down to the MDR and meet your fellow dining companions.
Has anyone stayed in a Bothy?? Sociable Stan ;) :)

I haven't, but when we lived in the UK, OH, a keen hiker, was part of a Volunteer Group who used to maintain and repair
these. They usually contained firewood and matches, which you were expected to replace before you left. :D
