Inverallochy has the post office and the school. Cairnbulg has the local mini supermarket/off licence and the library, and also has the harbour. There is also a hairdressers to your left,which is in Cairnbulg, and an ice cream shop, and possibly a few more retail outlets I have missed. Inverallochy also has a golf course, a very ancient one.
The DP often patrols around Cairnbulg. Its quicker than going to T****s for the daily paper. Plus he gets lots of photographs of sea birds,
and in the harbour which is mainly for small boats, he sees seals, and I of course can then paint from all his photographs.
Whilst on a recent perambulation he saw this.
At the other side of which and through the windows can be seen this.
So we are off to have a look see at the house. With a view to going through all the stress, surveyors, solicitors, builders, plumbers, window replacement etc. we thought we would never ever have to do again before I was placed gently into the septic tank.
Now why ? I hear you asking. Well, apart from just being plain daft, and this house needs a hell of a lot doing to it, so there is rescuing an unloved old house which we have done before. Bu this one has not got a vast garden.... I have spent a lifetime gardening, but can no longer do it. The one we have now was beautiful and could be again, but -not by me.
But - many a slip......
