I finished the book I bought in Gairloch. Gavin records his travels around Northern Europe from Shetland to Iceland to Greenland and beyond. I like his writing, having read Antartica, where he intersperses his travel writing and observations with historical references. The references to Icelandic Sagas is particularly interesting. Inspiring stuff.

We were in this brilliant coffee shop every day whilst camping at Gairloch, this year and every other time we've visited. Staffed by some cool, hippy ladies, selling amazing coffee and is also one of the best independent books shops around. Currently working my way through a bag of their Marley coffee and a book I purchase there. Enjoying both.

First track on their 2015 In Colour album. The contrast between the urban electronic sound and the simple, very English lyric is pretty amusing and not that tuneful, but then the tune develops, the cyclic rhythms loop and the wandering synth emerges into the acoustic foreground to transform into a thumping big beat wonder that sets the tone for the whole album. "Obvs" later in the album is a Caribbean dream based in London.

@GeorgeMonbiot Resistance to electric cars is not down to cost http://donaldmcintosh.net/resource/ev-cheaper-than-normal-car
@GeorgeMonbiot We proudly identify ourselves by the sort of car we drive. What does driving a noisy, smelly, dirty car say? Amazes me.
Looking forward to hearing @mrmarkbeaumont on Friday. #hebrideanway took him only 1 day! http://donaldmcintosh.net/resource/hebridean-adventure
