Great "in action" shots Wullie :thumbs_up:

Dont see the Ford loading shovels very often either. (When were they built from / to ? )

Is Brora not a distillery up on the east coast heading up towards Wick :?:

Cheers for photos (Ive got a few from Scrabster ? on the North coast to add when i find them :!: )

Thought i had more but only found these :(

Clynelish Distillery is next door to Brora distillery, I called in on the way past a few years ago Nice windy scenic coast road ok in good weather but poor in bad weather.

Carn be many of the Fords left now, as dont think they were a popular make.
