The coastguard & mountain rescue team visited the school yesterday, to demonstrate how they go about airlifting casualties & later let the kids have a good look at the equipment they use.

Margot's been on a girlie w/end at Inverness & between eating far too much, a couple of us managed a visit to the FH gardens at Bught Park. It was lovely to see flowers blooming in the middle of winter.

The ice pond in Flowerdale is living up to it's name, still semi frozen a week after the thaw.
Out towards Skye which keeps disappearing under storm clouds.
Lots of clouds threatening but we stayed dry & avoided frostbite with copious layers. The wind chill was making it about -6c.
Snow on the hills & the sand is frozen hard. We stayed out until about 4pm & just made it home as the snow hit. Within minutes the ground was covered & this was followed by several more flurries throughout the evening.
Andy braved an evening run to the pier & round the arboretum. Margot chickened out & did an hour on the treadmill at the leisure centre instead.
