A legend solved.

Loch Freuchie ('Fraoch' the heatherly loch),

The story goes that a young man named @mach 0.0013137, at the request of the lady Maidh, went to the dragon inhabited island to gather rowan berries. He completed the task and evaded the dragon but the lady insisted that nothing would please her except that he return to her with the uprooted rowan tree. On his second visit he got the tree but woke the dragon, who in mortal combat gnawed off @mach 0.0013137 arms and legs! Maidh found both lying dead on the shore of the crannog.

This legend must now be dispelled, but the question remains about the whereabouts of the rest of the crew.

I must say there wasn`t much on the island in the way of places to hide from a dragon ....

Ok, I`ll admit it - I`m not actually there but we have to be careful of some bad people south of the border who mean us harm.:bash:

PS & before certain members of the forum take offence - the individuals in question are NOT English:tongue:

There are a lot of Scots living down here as well as a few Brits like Andy Murray although if he does not start winning again he may have to revert to being a Scot :whistle:

For non important officials from the likes of the council and various other chancers like in supermarkets that seem to think they have a god given right to know who I am,  where I live and ask for my address and post code I give them a random address on one  industrial estate and then a post code that shows me living in a local skip hire yard.

Surprising the amount of junk mail I don't get these days.

:laugh: :laugh:

I worked in Glen Quaich, where loch Freuchie is situated, often, Anyone touring Scotland, the road from Amulree to Kenmore through Glen Quaich is spectacular.

@mach 0.0013137 the reason the island is so small in the picture is because U173 was fully submerged at the time and as the loch is shallow the water displacement is quite considerable.

I can confirm that, having gone out of the way just to enjoy that route on many occasions myself :thumbs_up:

It is amazing, if not disappointing that so far just over 1/4 of a percent, roughly 0.28% of the total membership, have come on board!!!  

I think it would be great to have a few thousand more...

There must be more members located between the Atlantic & Pacific Oceans, if not us poor orphans over here in the colonies will be sooo lonely!
