Now on a monthly basis, a 'link' will be added within this frame to take you to
 pictures from my Archive. It may be a random choice by me or it may be relative
 to a local up and coming event in the area. This month the Archive features a visit to
 Cardhu distillery for a meeting of some lovely classic cars en route to Elgin in July 2007
