Havin to revert to my archives due to the weather these past few days.

Here we have the view from the top of the Merrick, the highest mountain in the South of Scotland. The body of water below is Loch Enoch famous for it's sand with the Kells range behind. If you look closely you can just see the white sand at the edges of the Loch. In days gone bye local men went into the hills to collect this sand which they carried out in sacks. It was then sold to be used in the sharpening of knives, scythes and other sharp implements.
