About 36 years ago I worked on a team surveying the road from Rhiconich to the port at Kinlochbervie, and later
further north at Strathy. That job was the most enjoyable I've ever had, and in wonderful countryside. We stayed
for a short while at the Rhiconich Hotel (the name Murdoch rings a bell - which is something he never did at
closing time :-)) before moving to a caravan at Achrisgill - I think that was at the Postman's home - which
might explain how a letter from my girlfriend, now wife got to me with just my name and 'caravan next to white
cottage, Cape Wrath, Scotland' as the address. It was wonderful to hear the Gaelic spoken in the small shop by
the roadside (I am myself first language Welsh) and listen to the soft delivery of English, as I also heard
when staying with the wonderful Andersons at Strathy House. It's a long time ago, and I may be wrong about
this, but I remember going to a party at Ian McKie's home, and I think it may have been to celebrate the first
colour TV in the village - wonderful, simple, happy days.
I'm looking forward to the webcam!
