Local Petrol Station

July 2, 2013

Local Petrol Station

I captured this picture in Kintail today. It demonstrates the availability of petrol around here-only joking! The further North we travel in Scotland the more expensive Diesel gets. I also suspect that there are frequently 2 prices-one for tourists and one for locals. Otherwise why not display the price per litre?
Today we walked along the valley floor here in Kintail to view the mountain range The Five Sisters of Kintail. We have enjoyed spotting and naming various mountains. I am now a Munro spotter if not a Munro bagger! It has been a good lesson in map reading.
We stumbled across a great little craft and vintage shop today in the middle of nowhere. There were lots of interesting goodies. I am looking for some vintage linen to incorporate into my current work in progress-a patchwork quilt. There was nothing suitable today but I have a long list of items for which I am searching-but don’t tell Husband!
