Morar – April 2018

Some sketches, in chronological order (unusually).180407 - Innes & FraserDragging the boys round the shops in the car, making last minute preparations for a holiday on the beautiful west coast of Scotland.

080418 CamasdarochOn the beach at Camusdarach making the first of many sand castles.

180418 - MallaigThe local port is Mallaig.

180410 - to SkyeOver the sea to Skye. Skye is home to a disproportionate number of beautiful, subtle, architect designed homes.

180410 DualchasThese two are by the inspiring Dualchas.

April 2018 - AnCrubhAn uplifting community centre with a nice cafe, a cracking view and great hall. By Will Tunell. I love what a community development trust can achieve: remove the profit motive and make something great.

180411 JulieThe train journey from Mallaig to Fort William is amongst the most scenic in the world. And very popular with Harry Potter enthusiasts. We took the (cheaper) local service.

10419 GlenfinanThe highlight of the trip is the Glenfinan viaduct. It looks out towards the memorial to Bonnie Prince Charlie. Arrived 22nd June 1745. Made it to Derby. Routed 16th April 1746. Back to Europe 20th September 1746.

180412 - Isla Eigg RumEigg, Rhum and Isla in the same picture.

180412 Loch NibheisSailing back from Eigg.

180413 Raw ArchitectureThere’s some cracking domestic architecture on the mainland too.

180418 - Scottish Govt SeminarI do work too (though sometimes this all looks like holiday). Back home and waiting my turn to talk at a Scottish Government seminar on Build to Rent.

180421 - Book SaleMy sister’s brilliant fundraising book sale in aid of Alzheimer’s Research UK. With excellent help she raised £1,700.

180428 - SpartansBack to the cold. Fraser and Isla sheltering from the elements at our local community football academy, Spartans.

Any thoughts?
