Maybe Fred West has left jail and to get away from the hostile media he decided to move to a more remote location?

Obviously the 27th world endurance hopscotch championships have come to Scotland. Not only do the competitors have to Hop round 64 squares as opposed to the usual 10 they must also have to brave the elements of a Scottish winter at 2000ft dressed only in shorts and t shirts.
Or perhaps its a solid(ish) base for temporary ski tow equipment. just a guess.

Tesco have been so intent on global domination the penny's just dropped that their latest land acquisition may not be suitable for building yet another superstore.

Dont you need planning approval for hardstandings?

I cant imagine it anything to do with helicopters or a patio for an estate dinner party :lol:

I reckon if it was to be a hardstanding they could easily leveled it. Just about anyone is capable of that task.
I would go with some university project or some experiment on peatbog life. Each slab could give equal sized control areas that could be lifted individualy for different time periods. They have the weight to prevent them moving easily in wind etc

Just having a guess and a cue for me to switch off the pc and get on.
