A BIT dazed this morning after another 4am shot….but once again coffee and breakfast come to the rescue.

We chat round the table for a while then Bill, Dorothy, Valerie and Shady head off.

I grab a camera out the studio and make my way to the village for the opening of Tom and Rhona’s Mountain Garden – the last bit of development at Tom Weir’s Rest in Balmaha – to take some pix for a wee photo feature for the G63.scot webzine.

Once the story’s done I mess with the guitar before it’s time to jump in the car. We’re off to friends in Helensburgh for the night.

It’s great to catch up with Alastair and Karen and despite out best efforts not to kick the ass out it, it’s after 2.30am when Alastair and I call it a night.
