Over the last four weeks people have been looking out for the oranges that I put into the sea so far two people have found and recovered oranges along Loch Broom and Coigach. The full findings will soon be posted.
But what is coming to light from beach observers is a number of sightings of brightly coloured pebbles and stones, which have been reported on a number of beaches from Lochinver to Loch Broom.
The Highland Rangers have been notified and have agreed to help me investigate these stones next week. The plan is to collect samples at Lochinver on Tuesday, Achiltibuie on Wednesday and Ullapool on Thursday. Please get in touch if you spot one of these unusual pebbles or stones. If you would like to help us investigate them please join us on Ullapool beach next Thursday at 10.30am – 12 noon after which we will then be taking our specimens to a temporary laboratory being set up at An Talla Solais from 1 pm. Please drop in to help with the investigation. All welcome. Our initial findings will be put on display at the Macphail Centre.
