So, there is an overburden of soil on top of bedrock. Water seeping into the soil reaches the surface of the rock acting as a lubricant, causing the soil to slide. The remedy lies in removing the water and piping it away and down past the road. A shed would be of little use.

- A series of french drains are needed to intercept seepage above the road. The FD would redirect groundwater to a point of discharge below the road. It isn’t an impossible task but I admit I am not familiar with the topography and soil conditions.

You Scots owe it to yourselves to vote “yes” for independence. Am I to think that there aren’t enough brains in Scotland to implement a Constitution and a political system ? I hope that independence will come for Scotland. Minor revisions to the one you now have. It’s been a dream for many. And when it does happen “Proud England’s Army, can be sent home to think again”. You will be able to set up your first parliament at Balmoral !!!!!
