Black pudding disappointment for The Driver
HE decided the butcher in Stornoway has great looking Blackpudding .. Ok I say get some so Off HE toddled and came back with enough to sink a battle ship ..Black pudding and poached egg in the morning HE said ..
A GREAT DISAPPOINTMENT… Too greasy said the chef of the day .. I loved em .. but my diet was severely compromised Sabataged by a black pudding ..and a new innervation to our campervan kitchen Silicone bun cases from Mr Tesco ..excellent for poached eggs
Back to Stornoway and a stop in the Coop carpark .. No trade as all of these islands go by the church ethic of No work on Sunday ..One hell of an Internet signal which was made use of to FaceTime the kids then off down the road to visit the Calanais standing stones said to be the greatest Neolithic monument on the planet 50 standing stones in a shape of a cross , perched on the edge of a beautiful sea loch ..5000 years old ..very photographic but blowing old boots and pouring but so worth it to see the magnificence of such ancient structures ..
NB: I didn’t touch the stones after reading Dianna Gabaldon OUTLANDER BOOKS worth a read about a girl who did just that and was transported back to the Jacobite rebellion of 1750’s .. I don’t want to risk it ..Well you never know and I’m not cut out for living back in the day …
Amazing views from the Hill
