Frank,

For all the collossal help I've been given since joining this site, its very little (look at Aberdeenshire and my threads as a sample).
Also, this stuff only really works when we help each other, right?
I happen to know Caithness, but my Rosie is Fraserburgh.

Cheers,

James.

PS.  I believe Stroma is now uninhabited bar sheep and seabirds so nobody there to ask!

Could not agree more. The folks on this site seem to bend over backwards to help and I certainly appreciate it.
Iwas born in Wick and yes Stroma is now only inhabited by the Farmer who owns it. The pople who used to live there still visit it.I have always promised myself that I would visit Stroma some day but any time I go to Wick something seems to get in the way. Maybe someday soon???
always nice to hear from you

Frank

And there was a suggestion that Stroma was 'in the way' -
it interrupted the currents betweenCaithness and Orkney (a science thing).
