Our local dry stane dyker, John Rae, has been repairing the wall to the south of the Mire Loch over the last couple of weeks. Its like doing a three-dimensional jigsaw puzzle, but with no picture to give you a clue as to what goes where. It takes skill and patience, but when done well, you shouldn't be able to tell where the mend is. John very kindly took a set of photos of the work he's been doing over the last few weeks to give you a bit of an insight into the process. Liza.
