Comment posted Crown Estate Commissioners hang on like limpets to Scottish rights by newsroom.
Thank you Andrew. We understood that they had produced separate accounts for Scotland but, in the early days after their decampment, they merged the accounts – although they did later move to disaggregate them in the way you describe.
Your Excel table sounds a very valuable exercise. When you’ve added the 2012 figures, if you would like to email the table to me (firstname.lastname@example.org) we could put it in pdf format and add it as an downloadable attachment to this article under your name – along with an explanatory paragraph from you. This wold make it universally available.

- We doubt if anyone would see a departure from Charlotte Square as anything other than a corporate diminution – which was allied to a change in accounting practice,removing the previous separate accounting for the Scottish operation. Together these sketch an indicative story that needs to be told.
We take it that you are not suggesting that the Bells Brae Crown Estate Commission establishment remained identical in number and level in the aftermath of the move from Charlotte Square? You might care to detail both.
- Fair comment. There is genuine expertise of long standing in those who work for the Crown Estate Commission. We hear favourable remarks on this on a regular basis.

We too were certain there would be more intelligent service schedule this year and are as disappointed as you are – angry even, at the wasted opportunity.

- Oban South and the Isles to ready for by-election as Councillor Hall stands down
We have had it confirmed by Councillor McCuish that he does not intend to stand in the by-election in Oban South and the Isles.
Here’s a thought.
Supposing Councillors McCuish and Devon did stand down for re-election in this ward….
That would leave this large and sprawling ward [which includes Tiree and Coll out in the Atlantic] for eight weeks or so – in the sole charge of Councillor Alastair MacDougall from Mull [and an alarm clock}.

The emergency diversion route is always available to the emergency services, even when it is closed to other traffic.
It has been engineered with strategic lay-bys to allow both emergency vehicles and convoy traffic to use, snabling the fastest passage through by emergency services, even when a convoy is on the route.
During the working up period of the road, we watched a test usage scenario with convoy traffic going one way and emergency vehicles going the other way.
It seemed to work efficiently on that occasion, with discussions going on between both parties at appropriate points of conjunction.
The communications between the convoy leader and the emergency servces are obviuosly important.
