Ok it may well be an ex-hurricane but Bertha has proved too much for the loch side lane. Collapsed trees and mud and raging torrents of water have cut off the lochside from the outside world!
There was a tail back of at least two cars when I walked along to take some photos
It's rained and rained and rained....
It makes our little burn with it's leaky sides seem pale and insignificant by comparison!
The water flows over the wall, turns right, fortunately, and flows back into the burn again!
It does rain here (it's Scotland after all) but generally not like this. Heavy rain since yesterday evening. There have been landslides in many places. James who diverted our burn is coming back to do some adjustments, he says, before the real weather sets in?!
Ps. One day the unattractive breeze block wall will have a drystone wall in front of it.....that's the plan.
