A spur of the moment Friday evening hike up Meikle Bin to walk off dinner and see if I could get some half decent photos of the sun setting.

A fine night when out of the wind.

Hi bairdoboy. It is indeed a "great wee hill". No I didn't camp. Just made up a flask of coffee and sat on the hill till it got dark. A good relaxing way to spend a Friday night. I didn't go to the aircraft parts this time but have visited them many times before. I've still to find the old engine block tho' , seen pictures of it on-line but never managed to find it myself. I need to have another look.

Thanks,

/Colin.
