KEITH SHOW SUNDAY AND MONDAY AUGUST 12th AND 13th 2007

The preceding weeks up to the show being held, were very wet and the
ground was saturated. The Sunday show went ahead as planned but the
weather was not particularly good which reduced the attendance. After
torrential rain on Sunday afternoon it was decided to cancel the Monday
show for Health and Safety reasons since the ground was in a very bad
state. The situation was further exacerbated by a ban on livestock
movements due to an outbreak of foot and mouth in the South of
England. This picture gives an overview of the condition of the show
park on the Tuesday showing the clearing up operation in progress.

THE MORAY FIRTH AS SEEN FROM CULLEN BEACH IN LATE AUGUST 2007

 Cullen is very popular as a summer retreat for lots of Glaswegians on their
'trades holidays' and numerous other people of all nationalities from all    
parts of the world. The lovely beach, nice golf course and of course the    
 delicious ice cream. On a Sunday in the height of the summer if you arrive
by car it is very difficult to get parked near the ice cream shop. Then it's    
down to the beach area for a spot of people viewing and to enjoy your      
     slider or cone before it melts, and enjoy the view over the sea as seen here.

THE BALLOCH HILL OUTSIDE KEITH AS VIEWED FROM THE HIGH CUTHIL

At a height of over just 1200 feet ( 400 metres ) the summit of the
Balloch commands a wonderful view of Keith and the surrounding
countryside. Plug for the next picture in the series. In days long
gone it was common practice to climb the Balloch to collect Seagulls
eggs for boiling or frying. Deemed to make lovely scones when they
were incorporated in the recipe. But you had to beware of the gulls
who would scream past you and were only protecting their domain and
commonly nests with young.

KEITH FROM THE APTLY NAMED KILL BRAE - WINTER SLEDGING DOWN HERE !

 Keith lies in a valley called Strathisla. Main industry now is
Agriculture. In days gone by there were two woollen mills and
this was the largest employer in the  town. Now that has all
gone and the latest venture as of September 2007 is for a large
Tesco superstore on the site of what once was Robert Laidlaw and
Sons woollen manufacturer and involves re-alignment of the main
A96 road plus sadly demolition of some perfectly good private
houses. Progress !!! Try to pick out in the picture, a new office
block which has been built on the site of the old Mansfield Hotel.
The new building certainly stands out viewed from here.

INVERGORDON - ONE OF MANY MURALS DISPLAYED ALL OVER THE TOWN

    The painting shown is one of many dotted around the town with
varying themes all related to Invergordon. The window and the
car are real. The pink shutters are part of the painting.
Invergordon boasts visits from some of the largest cruise ships
from all over the world. The deep water facilities are ideal for
these large vessels to anchor and allow the passengers to easily
disembark and visit the town itself or partake of the various bus
trips to attractions in the area. Lets hope the visitors appreciate
the lovely paintings close at hand.
