It’s 50 years since a group of undergraduates from the Cambridge University Astronomical Society had a holiday surveying megalithic sites in Argyll to investigate possible astronomical alignments. It was a lot of fun, and we even wrote it up and the results were published in a paper in Nature 253, 431‑433 (1975) which was probably something of an achievement at the time, though I’m not sure that we realised how much!
We had a great time meeting up and revisiting old haunts in the area.
Glad to be back in Toronto again!

Unfortunately we had car problems which meant that we had to complete the journey by train, and abandon our holiday plans. This year we managed to do the holiday trip, though without a Halsway visit for once.

I love dammsugare (vacuum cleaners)! Together with Swedish coffee, of course.
