Indian takeaway opening in Kinlochbervie
As of 6 April people from Scourie, Durness & Kinlochbervie will be able to order freshly cooked Indian food. This is good news for me as "Anam Cara Croft" is literally just across the road so it is like a dream come true...
The new venture is run by Mike & Lucy who moved into the croft last year and are currently emulating Tom & Barbara in the Good Life. Various animals start arriving soon and the poly tunnel is already producing fresh food.
More details including delivery times and a menu can be found at:

"Sutherland Arts & Crafts" opened on 30 June 2012
The shop will be located in the unit formerly known as the Container Gallery just by the SPAR shop in Kinlochbervie. The idea is to create space for local arts & crafts people to be able to sell their work. Any items produced within the Sutherland boundary will be branded "Made in Sutherland" and I hope this will be popular with locals & tourists alike. In addition I will finally have space to display & sell my own photography and associated items such as Notebooks, Table Mats etc.
Now live at sutherlandartsandcrafts.co.uk
MF&P started life in 2001as a picture framing business but also offering picture sales and general photographic services. In addition I added PC support work, website design and high quality printing/scanning etc. MF&P is run by Pat Cooper who has had over 38 years experience of electronics, computing and photography. This includes a 29 year association with the British Antarctic Survey as an electronics engineer. During this period I generated a collection of over 12,000 slides of which around 8,500 have been scanned and are currently being catalogued. Update - 10 years later I still have not finished... My diaries (via The Croft link) give some insight into what has happened over the last few years.
Currently I am selling pictures from the websites listed below as well as:
I have posted a small collection of 600 Antarctic pictures on another site at:
All pictures are for sale as prints on high quality paper and an Epson 4900 printer up to A2 size. The 4900 allows me to use roll paper so panoramas can be printed substantially larger. Please contact me for more details. I have launched another website to showcase my growing collection of images from the Highlands of Scotland. The site also includes a growing selection of closeup & macro pictures of wild, and not so wild, flowers.
All picture on this site are also for sale. Prices will vary with size, quantity etc.
