You'll know DG and Charlie in Glenelg, I was in school with the pair of them... I believe Charlie is about to become/has become a father. I don't know when I am next on Skye but I hope to be living back in Scotland come October (I'm in Ireland at the moment). So, if you are in Edinburgh in October or after, we could meet.

Welcome into Fiery Spirits - just catching up after a couple of weeks of annual leave... once you've had a look at the site, let me know if there are some things you'd like to contibute (or just go straight ahead - coudl I suggest a blog post about your experiences on the rural leadership programme that you were telling me about when we met? I think that would spark quite some interest...). Also, please do invite some of your comrades from the course as you suggested - perhaps to help test some of the thinking you've all been doing in a wider forum?
best for now
