Ah janerobbie and you back …….. fabulous piece (sic); and sure men and women - are we all not mesmerised by that heady cocktail of light and flame?
Not to be too precious (but a little), some kind of unresolved grief pervades this whole area from Chimney to Spence’s wherein the same kelpie persists in trying to drown me in any case. Do you know anything else about this patch esp including from the little quarry workings and East?
Incidentally, another outlet of this American scrapyard thrives “doon hame” in the Galloway Hills where you’re as like to come upon a deer, an adder, a buzzard and a Zippo lighter. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/178/comment/1442/
