Rivals or fellow sufferers?

A string of dull days; a faint bruising of the thick cloud cover by the unseen sun is enough to excite hope.

To complement my post on the Haymarket Metro Station's award of second place in a national competition to find Britian's worse buildings I add this. The grass is not always greener on the other side ...

Having paid a recent visit to John O'Groats the disappointment factor I can say is acute. The people however, are, like sufferers everywhere, cheerful and welcoming. Neighbouring Wick and Thurso are positively cosmopolitan and the Thurso Museum is a delight.

Serious competition? Swan (Lake) House
