Last but one...


Well, our Ledgowan Hotel 'Pictures and Poems' Market is now behind us. This is a shot of our stall, strategically placed in the hotel's great hall and obscuring the massive fire[lace and the chesterfield settee on which I spent some time signing Going with Gabriel and More Deaths Than One. Note that the stall holder, Delia, is invisible behind her screens! However the old fellows whose magnificent heads adorn the walls are less camera-shy.

This market was as well organised as are all by Jackie West's productions, ably aided by Jim Curry. We had a jolly good time if by no means a record sales take. There were too few visitors for that, this being a Friday and a wet and windy November one at that. There were several new stalls, Eoghain Maclean's Highlands Wildlife being for me especially outstanding. Eoghain has been well known to and by us for several years. In fact ever since I walked into the office of the manager of the Beinn Eighe reserve some years ago. He's still in charge but has exchanged his sheep for his camera - and very successfully so.

Next week the last of the '09 markets, the one at Poolewe. For the first time Christmas begins to loom large.
