Hello Highlander

Well, I see no replies to your polite query, so Hello from America! (New Mexico, which is indeed a state in the USA). Where do you live? Western Highlands, I see, but where? I've been to the Ft William area a couple of times, taken the train to Mallaig and Oban, ferries to Skye & smaller islands. Gorgeous in summer. . .probably brutally cold in winter? I hear you have had a really bad winter so far, lots of snow and car accidents reported on news. Hope you stay safe through the holidays. We had a storm last week that left a blanket of snow on the mountains, but with temps in 40's F, all melted below. Look forward to hearing from you.

Yeah I was staying with friends... The only houses close were james', his brother, and mother

Lewis was beautiful and the weather was quite warm... Only disappointing thing was I missed seeing Manran play by just a day or two!!! Maybe next time...

Smile Ft William & New Mexico

Hello True Highlander!

[i see youve been to fort william im a little further north a little fishing village called ullapooll its a lovely place the gate way to the outer hebrideas]

[i][b]Yes, I stayed in Ft William at the Glenaladale Bed & Breakfast, Achintore Rd. for a week in late June. . .it was gorgeous. Great pubs down the street, perfect place to stay while exploring the west coastal area and of course, Glencoe which is one of the prettiest spots on the planet in my opinion. We took the CalMac over to Skye and the smaller islands, but next time I want to see the outer Hebrides. I really liked Inverness too.

[ is new mexico a nice place it sounds it its kinda cold here just now with the snow on the mountains ][/quote]

About New Mexico. . . not a bad place to live. Temps are moderate compared to other parts of the country, not too hot, not too cold. We get snow on the mountains but the city of Albuquerque sits at the edge of a desert below the Sandia mountains and the snow rarely sticks around for more than a few days before melting. If you want to ski or snow board, it's a tram ride away. Otherwise, hiking and biking are done year round. We have a rich Hispanic culture dating back to the 1600s when the Spanish came through New Mexico in search of the "Cities of Gold". . . the native peoples (Tewa tribes, basically peaceful farmers/hunters) have been here for thousands of years and their artwork, pottery, cliff dwellings and other artifacts have been carefully preserved.

If you want to email me, my address is cababq@gmail.com

Best,
Cynthia
