What a week this has been!

North Highland Way

I discovered that Scottish Natural Heritage do not look after the EC Directive on Sustainable Tourism and the NC500 may not adhere to it.

I have had a major battle to get public services in Scotland to work together, but hope that I have resolved the problem and that they can all work together for the benefit of the area, and that the Highlands and Islands Enterprise don’t keep asking me to write feasibility studies and business plans for free… even if they don’t know what the project is about and don’t know what to put in a business plan for a project of this nature which would normally be led by public services.

Hispanic Society of Carrickfergus

Despite the problems with the East Antrim University of the Third Age, which are ongoing, we had a fantastic week in July. We are now planning a series of films, talks, and a Spanish class, if we can get the numbers. Sadly due to personal reasons, I do not hold classes in Carrickfergus at the moment. The next class will start in January. Meanwhile, feel free to join us at Bennetts pub in Portadown for a Spanish English exchange. 6.30 to 8.30 – all welcome.

The main things are now:

A Walking week in Loja 8-15 December 2018.
A tour of Alhama de Granada to do some bird watching and Spanish in a completely new area of Spain. Contact us for details.

I have created a special flamenco page here.


I have completed three chapters of “Nuala” – not yet published. I have to ask the professionals about what they think first.

Next week I will give you a taster about my exploits in France…. what fun I had…!
