  2. I've been up to the top twice (once singlehanded) and met Cheshire Rose, that tireless advocate of this beautiful canal, on one occasion.

  13. Ardintigh, actually. I have often looked across at his place on Loch Nevis when staying with Son No 1 in Knoydart. Loch Nevis, BTW, in what you may refer to as Jockspeak, means 'Loch of Heaven', so whales do go to heaven. http://www.outdoorcentrescotland.co.uk/
