32 years later and today I made the same detour of over 20 miles down a single track road that looked like it hadn't been resurfaced since 1939 never mind 1979 to find the site of the photograph Mum took that day.
I drove up and down the only road that passes anywhere near Loch Ronald but couldn’t find the right combination of wall/tree/sign. Got the wall and the tree but no sign….
Then I spotted it leaning against a fence
God I’m good.
I came this close to walking off with the thing as a family heirloom because it wasn’t stuck into the ground but then posting details of the crime on this blog would have to win some kind of Dumb Crime of the 21st Century award wouldn’t it.
Just a note to the next generation of the family: Laura, Jimmy, Charlotte, Rachel, Jasper and Imogen – I expect one of you to go and check that the sign is still there in 2043. My driving licence will have expired so you'll have to take me in your hovercar or whatever you young people are using by then.
