It’s Raining, it’s Pouring

The Isle of Arran’s Sleeping Warrior with a light dusting of snow on Saturday, seen from near Dunagoil on Bute during a brief respite in the rain. We’d hoped for an icy winter wonderland this weekend, but were glad of the higher than predicted temperatures when we discovered that the Buteshack and its contents had been soaked through by the recent storms. Since the electric fire was knackered, we were forced to take refuge beside the log burning stove in the local pub…it’s a hard life.

    Hi Moira,

    What a beautiful photograph! Sorry to hear about the Buteshack – I think that a lot of buidlings suffered storm damage.

      I think we were lucky to get off relatively lightly, those winds must have been terrifying. Our wee patch of grass out the back is studded with slates from the roof which are embedded vertically in the soil, as if they’ve been hurled by a knife thrower…glad no-one was in their path at the time!
