It was positively cosy at the foot of the sheltering cliff, where the burn from the hill cut through the sand and the rock to the sea, but Algy knew that soon it would start to rain again and he would have to seek more adequate cover…

Algy hopes that if you are experiencing stormy weather this weekend, you will be able to find yourself a warm and cosy spot to relax in :)

The Rowan Tree (Mountain Ash)

In Scotland many houses will have a Rowan in their grounds as a guard against witchcraft.  The Rowan or Mountain Ash has long been associated with folklore.  See: http://treesforlife.org.uk/forest/rowan/ 

The berries actually make a very fine jelly which is a delicious accompaniment to venison and cold duck or goose.
