As usual a great video Bruce. Looks as if you had a nice day out with the only dampner the fog! I take it the new electronics work well and brought you home on the mark.
Sorry I missed you in Girvan but I was in tayvallich all that week.

It's a shame that they don't still keep the fog horns going , especially when there is a local sustainable solution.
