At the bottom of the road, as we all know, we are told that the road is private. This is because the Civil Aviation station sits atop Ben Hynish and some degree of security must be observed. I don't think they really mind as long as you don't actually enter the compound (which I didn't). In any case, only the tarmac is 'private' and in the training days and weeks to come I don't intend to be on it very much.
It's a beautiful wee Ben and tomorrow I intend to go explore it some more. I'm fascinated by the dry stane dykes that are up there. What work went into their construction!
Tomorrow I'll take the camera with me and make a wee video.
Today's picture is of the personalised license plate of my friend Archie MacKinnon who lives in Guelph, Ontario. Apparently personalised license registration plates cost a fraction of what they do in this country. I had a look at the DVLA site a little while ago and - by way of an example - TY57 REE is going for about £1200.00!
