Wild typing in Scotland

You can’t go to Scotland and not do a bit of wild typing. The sound of the water in the burn was wonderful, and the isolated spot – super. No curious cattle, thank goodness, and no sheep. This was made at a ‘secret’ location with an Olympia Splendid 66. It has all the right features for typing a sketch, but I did think the touch a bit clunky or heavy. Very nicely portable though, and not too heavy in a back-pack. Does not like being made to type on a slope, though. I had to keep my knees as level. I would have liked to have had more time to draw, but this was a family break, and we had fires to build! More on fires later. The thing I love about going for a walk in Scotland is the fact that you can just have a walk anywhere, up any hill within reason, and not have some crazy farmer chase you off the land poking a shot-gun out of a four-wheel drive at you! (Yes, this has happened in England, but things are – different – north of the border!) Common sense and good manners in the countryside, and leave nothing but your foot-print and you can’t go wrong.
