This is an early morning preen from a pigeon on the pier at Inveraray, where I've spent part of the weekend speaking to Scottish teachers about the MFLE project that I help manage. It's brilliant to wake up in a place like this and go for a walk along the side of this sea loch, Loch Fyne. Especially when just an hour away you can have all the city life you like in Glasgow.

The loch (Scots for lake) is incredibly famous for being home to the world's best oysters and salmon, and there's the well-known Loch Fyne Oysters, a restaurant and shop (they do online, too) where you can buy some of the freshest seafood you've ever seen. I remember going in here quite often when our family made the 80 mile round trip from Dunoon every Sunday to go to Inveraray's church. We'd pop into the Oyster shop to pick up something for tea. The smell in the shop is pure sea. Not salty. Just sea.

These weekly trips deserve a blog all to themselves! ;-)
