There has been an increase in the number of badgers roaming these parts and this has put the wind up our chickens. Two of them have taken to roosting in the postbox outside the kitchen window and are steadfastly refusing to return to the hen house. It's convenient at breakfast time but if anyone gets dirty post from us that is the reason.
How apt that my hundredth post from Inshriach should be like this.

6 months ago Captain Bob donated this big grey Landrover, known only as Petal, to the Inshriach cause. Post Insider she has new found aquatic responsibilities. We have taken a mooring on Loch Morlich for the boat and are starting to learn how to sail. Petal is also getting some work in on the BBC Scotland children's show Raven that is filmed locally, often within a few miles of Inshriach. (I'm not supposed to take any photos on set or say anything much away about it here) This new role led to her getting totally stuck in the beautiful surroundings of Loch Laggan yesterday.

Thank you all so much for an astonishing weekend. I have written a little more about it on the Insider site which we are going to turn into a gallery and in our new tradition of abstract artistry we also would like to make a film, for which we need your help. Any of you with good photos and especially good videos I would love to see them and I have set up a flickr group, Insider at Inshriach, which anyone can post to, or you could add them to the facebook group, we use Friends of Inshriach to tell people what we are up to and it's slowly gathering friends.
May this be just the first of many, Backwoods productions are already plotting where to go from here.
