    Another interesting grave in this little graveyard is in memory to a piper, Charles McArthur. The inscription on the horizontal stone reads, "Here lie the remains of Charles MacKarter whose fame as an honest man and remarkable piper will survive this generation for his manners were easy and regular as his music and the melody of his fingers will" - and then stops short, leaving the rest blank.

    It is said that the stone was commissioned by Charles's son, but when the son drowned in the Minch, the stonemason doing the work concluded he was unlikely to be paid, so simply stopped work at the point he had reached!

    Waiting for the boat to take us back to Kinross across Loch Leven. The castle and the island are all cared for nowadays by Historic Scotland.

    For those interested, this was the journey of the "Boat Party" in July/August, 1970. We had arrived at Mestersvig, flew by helicopter (the blue solid line) south to the top of the Schuchert Valley, walked 40 miles or so (dotted red) to Gurreholm, picked up the boat and sailed (dotted yellow) first to Syd Kap and then to the place in the photograph.

    For those interested, this is a front view of the same car in which you can see the magnificent brass radiator, the paraffin sidelamps and the acetylene headlamps.

    A front view of this 1936 Morgan Super Sports. You can clearly see the twin-cylinder "V" engine, made by J.A.P., with its exposed overhead valve gear as well as the "sliding pillar" independent front suspension which was designed by H.F.S. Morgan for his first car in 1910 and is still used on some present-day Morgans - basically an extended long kingpin which allowed not only axial rotation of the wheel hubs but also vertical longitudinal movement.

    Hi Malgo,

    I thought this might bring back some nice memories for you - this is the Edwardene Hotel in Keswick where we stayed in early June, 2011. Here you see Martin (MJR) - sadly never seen now on TE - with his two young boys. And standing at the door are the people who owned and ran the hotel - Russell and Marie - who were wonderful hosts. Those breakfasts were wonderful - didn't need to eat again for the rest of the day!
