    "Great read every day. Makes me smile as Rab muses about music and his irreverent views on the EU. Tune in, you won't be disappointed."

    "Excellent 'Blog' which can be controversial at times, while maintaining it's humour. Keep it up Big Rab!"

    "Updated every day with doses of good humour, political satire, a running commentary on the progress of author's home football team and his life."

    "Pure brilliant, so it is - I never miss it, though God knows, I've tried."

    "An inspiration to start my own blog"

    "For dipping into it's better than pakora sauce"

    "Anyone who doesn't like the EU and has a soft spot for Albion Rovers can't be all bad"

    "Facile and False"

    "Populist,puerile and prosaic"

    "Utter pish! Keep it up, I love it!"

    "People may also find the Ben Lomond Free Press blog illuminating, interesting and/or amusing. It’s not mentalist as such but familiar themes emerge. I particularly like accounts of encounters with strange elementals (of course! ELEmentals!) from elfin safety. And the fact that the blog is run by someone who plays in a blues band called Harmonica Lewinsky."

View from Canoe

As we have battled pretty crepe weather here in West Central Scotland in recent weeks, and as my back has been giving me grief, opportunities for canoeing have been few and far between.

This morning though, having secured a day’s respite from despicable commerce and trade, I took to the water. I was paddling by 7:00 when most BLFP readers were presumably still tucked up.

It was cold.

It was pretty grey.

It was wonderful.

Peace, perfect peace.

I paddled round the island of Inchconnachan.

I got these photos:

The lonesome pine at Inchconnachan

Buccinch and Conic Hill in black and white. There is virtually no difference from the colour shot!

Battered by years of weather and waves. Not me! These rocks where I stopped for a cuppa!

Comment on the loch about my internet connection!

We were going to have a wake but.....

The death theme continues....Who was Netta I wonder?

  1. I believe Netta may be Lady Henrietta “Netta” Gilmour
    This seems to fit.


    She was an interesting lady. One of the earliest lady photographers.
