Bus Trip to Cromarty

Committee Member Joan Taylor has been hard at work arranging a bus trip to Cromarty on Saturday 18th August with the bus leaving Forres at 10:45am and returning at 4:00pm.

Hugh Miller was a world-renowned geologist, author, newspaper editor, human rights campaigner and a founder of the Free Church of Scotland. The visit will take in the elegant Georgian house that he moved to when he married and the cottage where he was born. The house holds a fascinating interactive exhibition and the cottage has an evocative audio tour taking you back to his early life in Cromarty in the 1800s.

After lunch (for which you should make your own arrangements at the many eateries in Cromarty) we will visit The Courthouse where you can meet the eccentric 17th century laird Sir Thomas Urquhart of Cromarty and see a trial from the 1770s in the original courtroom, with life-like animated models with voices of local people. The time is then your own until we return at 4:00pm.

The cost of this trip has been restricted to £5.00 per head for Friends and £10.00 for non-Friends. This includes admission to both venues.

If you are interested in going drop an email to the Friends at friends@falconermuseum.co.uk before 1st August.

I am the sort of guy who passions to seek radical stuff. Presently I'm making my own pv panels. I am doing it all by myself without the help of my staff. I am using the internet as the only path to acheive that. I ran across a truly brilliant website which explains how to build solar panels and so on. The internet site explains all the steps required to solar panel construction.

I am not exactly sure about how precise the data given there is. If some people over here who had experience with these works can have a look and give your feedback in the thread it would be great and I'd extremely value it, cauze I extremely enjoy solar panel construction.

Thanks for reading this. U people are great.
