Every time that mild south westerly winds are forecast there is likely to be the potential for landslides on the Rest and be Thankful.

- The BBC 5 Day weather forecast is not always accurate. It did not forecast the storms on 3rd January 2012 until the last minute. The best forecast to use is magicseaweed.com with has seperate charts for wind and pressure for the next 180 hours ( seven and a half days).

- Castle Toward – let it go now
I am surprised that Michael Russell has not asked his mates at Holyrood to purchase Castle Toward for the people of Scotland.
The £1.75 million that Argyll & Bute Council is demanding as the sale price could be deducted from the Scottish Government annual hand out to the council for the financial year 2015-16.
Then everything would be sorted.
The Argyll & Bute councillors would have got their £1.75 Million sale price, the Scottish Government would own Castle Toward for the people of Scotland and most importantly it would not have cost the Scottish Government a penny to buy it.
- Castle Toward – let it go now
To date I have not taken any interest in the Castle Toward debate because I knew nothing about it.
The above report from BBC Scotland states that Argyll & Bute Council received Castle Toward due to the result of local government re-organisation in 1996 and they received it for the payment of £1.
Since then it has been a millstone round their neck.
Therefore Argyll & Bute Council should sell Castle Toward to the highest bidder as anything received is better than nothing.
Of course this will be a case of robbing “Peter to pay Paul” as no doubt taxpayers money will be given to the South Cowal Community Development Company to pay for the purchase.

Have you actually attended a senior professional football game in the past five years.
I have been at Dens Park Dundee and there is never any trouble apart from home games against Rangers and Celtic.
Therefore as a pilot scheme, alcohol could be sold to fans at games between clubs outwith the Old Firm.
- Savills say new version of Land & Buildings Transaction Tax 27% higher than rest of UK
There is no need to have a debate about the declining population in Argyll & Bute as the reason is quite obvious.
The schools in Argyll & Bute are keen for as many school leavers as possible to go university when they leave secondary school. Whilst that in theory may be a good idea in practice it means that most of the school leavers do not come back to work in Argyll & Bute after graduating from university as there are few if any jobs in their chosen field in Argyll & Bute.
Schools would be far better encouraging their school leavers to serve an apprenticeship in one of the trades but that does not look good in the league tables for secondary schools.
- Permanent Secretary to Scottish Government steps down to mixed reviews
Hopefully the next Permanent Secretary to the Scottish Government will be fair and independent to all parties at Holyrood and not cosying up to “nippy sweetie” Nicola!
