The friendly Isle, my third business visit, this time with our buyer. He was impressed with the island, the people and the food. We stayed at the Glenorchy hotel which for a Lerwick base is just the best value. Best restaurant found so far is Montys, in Montgomery street and a short walk from the Glenorchy. The Glenorchy has¬† a Thai slant to food and also has a good restaurant, it is in a quiet place just off the town centre and parking is easy. Norman, our buyer was impressed with the neatness and tidiness of the supplier's premises and…

The reason I had spare time was our lab was being assessed for accreditation by UKAS assessors, and I was the virtual spare person at a wedding. This, because my assistants were the builders and I was the architect, so well done Jamie and Sandy, master builders. Everyone who has achieved UKAS accreditation knows the difficulties, so I would like to thank John Macavoy, chief materials engineer¬† for the M74…
At the moment the biggest inland windfarm in Europe, built by a JV of Morrison Construction and Balfour Kilpatrick, for the client Scottish Power.¬† There was a talk about it in the Teacher Building in St Enoch square last night. I wasn't there but it prompted me to google "whitelee windfarm" to see how we were beating our chests at having nearly completed this huge prestigious project. Ten pages later in google, nothing, nada, ziltch. Every man and his dog is featured including a video of a quarry blast on U tube. My involvement (unknown to me at the time)¬†…
