According to the Minutes of a recent Mull Community Council meeting at which a representative of SPR gave information on the possible route of the transmission lines, the ones they are looking at are the sea route south of Mull to just north of Oban and the route through Loch Na Keal to Salen, down to somewhere near Craignure and then over to Oban and down the road to Dalmally.

- According to the SPR, the land route from Loch na Keal would be put underground; same for following the road down to “somewhere near” Craignure. The same will apply for the stretch on the mainland to Dalmally – it’ll be road hell on and off for two years!
The Tiree Array will also be visible from the road running down from Reudle; that amazing view of Beinn More, Gribun cliffs over the Ross to Iona and the Treshnish.

- Parliamentary committee backs preservation of ‘The Tinkers’ Heart’
I’ve always been slightly confused with the terms tinkers and gypsies in Scotland – it meant something very different when I first encountered them in England. Down and admittedly a long time ago, gypsies were Romanies and tinkers were the ones you had to watch out for. Then we got new age travellers – many of whom we found to be the equivalent of tinkers. Where we happened to live before coming back north was a very long-standing site for gathering of the locals and gypsies – coins and artefacts dating back centuries still came to light when gardening. We had a lot of gypsies come by and they were the most charming people. Never stole anything and quite often they’d help us and we’d try to give something in exchange – rarely accepted but declined in the most courteous terms, purely because we’d given them a bit of space for a couple of days.
So if this is important to those people, we should be respecting it.
It seems the UK is falling over backwards to accommodate other cultures – sill waiting an answer on Halal meat in our local supermarket – perhaps we should widen our thinking?
- Crown Office sets our social media prosecution policy
Well, as far as this forum is concerned (don’t do Facebook or Twitter), there might be a less rudeness and a bit more debate of facts to support individuals’ various points of view. I know some may enjoy it, but sometimes it just takes over.

They’re lucky it’s only going to take six weeks – how many years have the folks of Mull being waiting to get the Craignure linkspan sorted?

Apologies, Sokay, but I don’t understand your post; perhaps you would care to translate?
