It is far too small, and breaks up a good long straight!

But back on topic; what’s so good about A&Bs forestry strategy? As far I can see it’s “let’s plant trees like it’s still the 80s.”

  1. It’s my fathers birthday in a couple of days so I ordered him a bottle of his favourite dram from an excellent whisky shop in Helensburgh which a couple of friends of mine own.
    Their opinion on the new waitrose is that it will suck the lifeblood out of the town centre. For what is already a tough season for many shop owners will get tougher once trade gets focused away from the centre.
    I made a conscious choice to support this shop despite being away at the moment. These artisan shops need our support other wise the burgh faces becoming just another clone town.

  2. I wonder how many planning awards were given out for the roundabout in Argyll Square Oban where you have to stop and give way? Or the Tescos/Lochavullin mini roundabout that’s completely pointless….mid you the water feature’s nice!

    • Perhaps you’re looking in the wrong direction – aren’t roundabouts the work of our road engineers, rather than our planners? My favourite hate-object roundabout is the relatively new one on the A82 Alexandria bypass, adorned with traffic lights which – when at green – make it impossible for traffic to stay in lane on the roundabout because it was designed for traffic to enter from a stop. Trucks and buses aren’t able to stay in lane even from a standing start; a real farce, and a dangerous one at that.
