Culloden, Elgin, Turriff and Huntly

Today, we left here quite early

Culloden Moor Caravan Site

after first using the motorhome servicing point. Nell finds this process worrying

Nell worries in case Mr L decides to hose the rear windows, so deserts the bed in favour of my seat, which is as far away from the worry as is caninely possible

We went first to here

How many solicitors are based in such wonderful premises
