Your Culture For You.
Between Homecoming 2014, the Commonwealth Games (which runs
from 23 Jul) and the R*ferend*m, there are plenty of reasons to be
contemplating what our culture means to us and regardless of your
view on any of the above, you cannot fail to acknowledge how the
Highland Games loom very large in our local culture. The Inverness
Highland Games - established exactly one million years ago (check p25
for accuracy), is at the Northern Meeting Park this year on Sat 19 July.
Inverness is developing plenty of new cultures and traditions - but this
shouldnt be at the expense of our wealth of heritage, otherwise theres no
net gain. Rediscover your inner Highlander and get along. Read all about
it in our 4-page pull-out in the centre pages.
Inside this issue WIN a 300 Recliner from Lochgorm, an Inverness
Caledonian Thistle Mascot Pack from new shirt sponsor Subway, and
tickets to see the new Transformers movie at Vue with FREE popcorn.
We really are good to you, arent we? On top of all that, heres what you can
read about on the pages with the words on:
ART: Two very dierent shows both with slightly frivolous titles: Nonsense
Works from the emerging Tracey I Campbell and Accidentally Deliberate
featuring the well-established brilliance of Eugenie Vronskaya. | FILM: July is
blockbuster month - with new Transformers, Planet of The Apes, How To
Train Your Dragon and a quirky Marvel outing in Guardians Of The Galaxy
and many great non-blockbusters too! | KIDS: Two great live shows featuring
none other than longstanding faves The Grualo and Scooby Doo |
MUSIC: Some big folk & world music performances including Saltshforty,
The Two Man Gentlemen Band, Pacic Curls and Funky Shepherds |
SPECIALS: The Inverness Highland Games sees a bunch of chunky bekilted
fellas hit town and another one visits Ironworks in the form of dead famous
wrestling man Rowdy Roddy Piper. | SPORT: They dont come much tougher
than the Great Glen Ultra Marathon, whilst for the softies, theres a host of
pre-season football friendlies featuring all your favourite clubs. | THEATRE:
Summer riches include A Midsummer Nights Dream at Cawdor, Peter Pan
(with skateboards!?) at Brodie - and both Elaine C Smith and the Ladyboys Of
Bangkok at Eden Court - although apparently not together. Shame
Dont just sit there! Visit: whatsonhighlands.com

There are busy times for IG:LU in Church Street. Having hosted masterclasses for the
Highland Fashion Week, rootsy music in the RootsnCheroots season and even live
sessions for Netsounds during goNORTH, its back to showcasing art this month with
an exhibition of recent works from TRACEY I CAMPBELL called NONSENSE WORKS [1]
running from 0213 JUL. Originally from Sutherland, Campbell currently studies Painting
and Printmaking in Glasgow, a city whose artistic community is still reeling from the
conagration at Rennie Mackintoshs irreplaceable GSA.
Campbells pieces are impressive both in scale and scope, suggesting shes very much
a talent to watch.
The title Nonsense Works mirrors the attitude taken during the work process. Campbells
current method of investigation has embodied an experimental ethos, a uidity of ideas
and subject matter that have yet to reach full clarication - the works represent a xed state
of investigation.
The format of Nonsense Works incorporates painting, printmaking, made objects and
embroidery. Campbell brings together the aspects of the working process for display from
life studies, drawings and experiments, to nalized works.
Crucial to these works, she says, is an element of duality: between the abstract and
the reality - an enquiry into the cross over between the physical and the subconscious.
Through the pieces Campbell explores the dual elements of physical representation
and representation of idea using repetition, sequence, motif and pattern as a tool for
communication.
This exhibition acts as a catalogue of experiments for Campbell, which, she notes, may
be disregarded or resurfaced at a later date as she extends and furthers her enquires.
Campbell may be a rising star, but one whos been around a while is the always excellent
EUGENIA VRONSKAYA. Her new show, ACCIDENTALLY DELIBERATE [2] at the KILMORACK
GALLERY from 11 JUL-09 AUG nds her exploring more colourful canvases and investing her
pieces with a dreamlike quality. Read more about it in our listings overleaf. >>>

TIM STEAD: OBJECT MAKER
AND SEED SOWER, to 13 Jul
Touring retrospective of sculpture
by TIM STEAD complimented by
furniture and artworks inspired
by Tim and created by friends:
1973-2000. This is the nal
exhibition to be originated prior
to Tim Steads unique, family
home, The Steading, and its
contents being passed to the
Princes Regeneration Trust in
partnership with the Scottish
Borders Council. It comprises
of a collection of quiet,
contemplative and enigmatic
works which demand a multi-
sensory appreciation, including
works made in the last year
of his life, described by Julian
Spalding as a radical revival of
the art of sculpture at its purest
and most abstract. Imbued with
a vocabulary guided by his desire
to pay tribute to the tree, they
capture a playful exploitation
of the characteristics of the
different types of wood used as
well as space and form.
BUD TO BLOOM
19 Jul to 10 Aug, Bud to Bloom
presents contemporary craft
works inspired by the natural
world and life-cycle of plants,
selected from the Crafts Council
Collection, in the Heart of the

patterning, colours and materials
of the works in the exhibition
have been inuenced by plants,
owers and fruit, in playful,
creative and experimental
ways. It includes leading UK
glassmakers Angela Jarman and
Neil Wilkin, textile artist Michael
Brennand-Wood, designer Tord
Boontje, silversmiths David
Clarke, Junko Mori and Lin
Cheung, and ceramicists Felicity

EUGENIA VRONSKAYA:
ACCIDENTALLY DELIBERATE
11 Jul to 9 Aug
Painting at its best does
more than merely capture
the subject matter, or make a
pleasant image; it should take
you somewhere unexpected.
Dreams, colours and stories
may arise from almost anything.
Even the tools of everyday life
a sink or a cupboard can
bring about freedom and open
a window to elsewhere. This
voyage is deliberate, and like
life, it is made interesting by the
unpredictability of accidental
marks and unexpected colours.
Vronskayas latest body of
work has moved on since her
last exhibition at Kilmorack in
2011. There are more colours,
or brighter colours, which bring
a dreamlike quality to this latest
work; it is akin to the almost
magical-realist style of Peter
Doig. The canvases vibrate - in
blue, red and yellow. It makes
them exciting. There are
also secret paths of drawing,
connecting and unifying the
composition. The compositional
blocks of colour do the
same, uniting and dividing
simultaneously. It reminds me of
an Indian gurus words: we think
of ourselves as waves, but we
are all the sea.

11 AD COMP 143.indd 3 10/06/2014 15:57
Whats the connection between HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2 [1], TRANSFORMERS:
AGE OF EXTINCTION [2] and DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES [3]? Well not only are
they all guaranteed blockbusters, but theyre also proudly released in 3D as well, a format
that seems to be here for the long haul now. Its unlikely that any of the effects will be
delivered with the inventiveness and verve utilised by French lmmaking legend Jean Luc
Godard in his Cannes award winning GOODBYE TO LANGUAGE, out later this year, which
takes 3D to a whole new level, but they should provide some unchallenging fun.
More 3D in GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY [4], the decidedly odd superhero movie that our
own KAREN GILLAN shaved her head for. As well as the mighty Ms. Gillan the admirably
curious cast includes PETER SERAFINOWICZ, VIN DIESEL, BENICIO DEL TORO, JOHN C REILLY,
GLENN CLOSE and, obviously, BRADLEY COOPER as a racoon. The most unconventional
installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it could be some kind of bonkers genius, as
well as allegedly containing some teasers for the next Avengers lm.
Bonkers genius is an epithet which used to be applied to NICOLAS CAGE, though in recent
times hes become almost a parody of himself. Critics are acclaiming something of a return
to form though in JOE [5], a gritty documentary-style tale of an ex-con and his friendship
with a 15 year-old boy. Notorious already for featuring a genuine homeless man, GARY
POULTER, who died before the lm was even released, it might just prove to be Cages
career resurrection.
Others worth watching out for this month include BELIEVE [7] (BRIAN COX as Matt Busby
in a footy lm set in 1984 and based on real events); the invariably excellent CONNIE
NIELSEN and CATE BLANCHETT voicing the documentary GALAPAGOS AFFAIR: SATAN
CAME TO EDEN which interweaves an unsolved 1930s murder mystery with stories of
present day Galapagos pioneers; another documentary, FINDING VIVIAN MAIER [6] about
a nanny whose previously unknown cache of 100,000 pictures earned her a posthumous
reputation as one of the great street photographers and the brilliantly titled THE 100 YEAR
OLD MAN WHO CLIMBED OUT OF THE WINDOW AND DISAPPEARED [8], based on the
best-selling novel by Jonas Jonasson and telling the unlikely story of a centenarian who
decides its not too late to start over.
This month also marks the return of the LOCH NESS FILM FESTIVAL taking place at various
venues including Craigmonie Centre and Abriachan and placing emphasis both on short lms
and, something we wholeheartedly approve of, guerrilla lm making, the latter very much
aimed at kids who want to turn an enthusiasm for movies into making the real thing. More

KIDS
FILM ART MUSIC SPORT SPECIALS THEATRE
Hes Got Knobbly Knees
& Turned Out Toes
Curious to think that there was once a world without THE GRUFFALO [1] in it. However,
ever since Julia Donaldson came up with the simple, charming yarn in 1999, aided by Axel
Schefers iconic illustrations, the story of the mouse and the monster (a mere 700 words
long) has become as rmly ingrained in kids consciousness as fairy tales centuries old.
And its something thats being discovered by youngsters on a daily basis, hence the
enduring popularity of anything connected with the story. One of the most successful
enterprises being the stage show, which returns to EDEN COURT from 1820 JUL. Ought
to be packed out, so get your tickets now or the little uns will never forgive you.
For some, childhood isnt associated with a scary beast in a forest, but a school janitor
ripping off a mask and declaiming, if it hadnt been for you darned kids
Such was the conclusion of every single episode of Scooby Doo, so itll be interesting
to see if it pops up in SCOOBY DOO: THE MYSTERY OF THE PYRAMID [2] at EDEN
COURT on 05 & 06 AUG. A little way off we know, but such was the popularity of the last
appearance by Scooby, Shaggy and the gang that this musical comedy is bound to
sell out fast. So you know what to do if you want to enjoy a rip-roaring adventure
involving pharaohs, pyramids, Scooby-snacks, Shaggy the archetypal slacker
and Fred pretending to be the Big I Am.
Filmwise kids are well catered for this month with HOW TO TRAIN
YOUR DRAGON 2 [3], PUDSEY THE DOG: THE MOVIE, a new Disney
ick, EARTH TO ECHO and TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION
all released, but if youre looking for something a little more active,
theres a whole programme of events organised by High Life Highland
worth checking out.
Head to highlifehighland.com to nd out more.
And INVERNESS LEISURE have also got a special series of events
planned for the summer hols under the banner SO (standing for
Schools Out). Theres everything from swimming and running to lazer
tag and kayaking.

A World of Choice
With everyone recovering from goNORTH and undoubtedly giddy to the point of distraction
at the prospect of Tom Jones headlining Belladrum in August, its perhaps best that live
music this month is rather more low-key than usual. That said, there are still some acts
well worth checking out, beginning with SALTFISHFORTY [1] at EDEN COURT on 12 JUL.
Combining the rich traditional music of Orkney with original, contemporary compositions,
the duo of Douglas Montgomery (ddle/viola) and Brian Cromarty (guitar/mandola/vocals)
have been together for a decade and live performances are their particular strength.
As is that of PRESTON REED [2] who plays EDEN COURT on 18 JUL. If guitar skills are
your thing, Reed more than repays your interest, with his fusion of chord-based grooves,
soaring melodic runs and polyrhythmic percussion that integrates the breathtaking
potential of the guitar body.
CRAIGMONIE CENTRE isnt always the rst destination we look out for when it comes
to live music, but the Drumnadrochit community centre has a couple of treats in store
this month, kicking off with FUNKY SHEPHERDS on 22 JUL. The band members are
shepherds from Malealea village on Lesothos Maluti Mountains. They are self-taught
musicians, reminiscent of what East Africans call jua kali - informal artisans who earn
their living by working in the open under the hot sun. With recycled material including
disused oil cans, car tyres, twigs (yes, really!) and a kitchen sink, the band have created
all their instruments and to see them utilise them all is a thing of wonder.
Its a free family concert, as is the performance by PACIFIC CURLS on 27 JUL. Over the
ve years theyve played together, the three members have accumulated an impressive
instrumental collection featuring the ukulele, cajon, ddle, Taonga Puoro traditional
Maori instruments, guitar, stomp box, kalimba, various percussive instruments and
vocals with lyrics in Te Reo Maori, Rotuman and English. Kim Halliday (Rotuman/NZ
Scottish), Ora Barlow (Te Whanau-a-Apanui/English) and Indi Star (Malaysian/Scottish)
perform music with a cornerstone of backbeat Pacic rhythms, vivacious ddle playing
evoking the Scottish highlands and evocative Maori instrumentation and lyrics.
More invigorating fusion comes in the form of THE TWO MAN GENTLEMAN BAND [3] at
EDEN COURT on 01 AUG. Their Django-meets-Cab Calloway sound is proving to be both
a commercial and aesthetic success with them storming the US roots charts and even
leading to them being hired to write the music for the hit Disney cartoon series, Wander
Over Yonder. Should be immense fun.

Though you might not be aware of it, 2014 marks the 150th anniversary of the opening of
Northern Meeting Park, an arena that can proudly boast of being the oldest Highland Games
venue in the world. Its existence (built by popular demand in 1864 to cater for crowds that were
getting too big to contain) is testimony to an age when the Games really were the epicentre of
sporting life up here and indeed there have been gatherings in Inverness since 1822.
Just to put that into perspective thats a mere thirty years after the French Revolution and only
half a century after the founding of the USA! Football wouldnt be invented for a lifetime. The
Highland Games were where it was at. No wonder they inspired Baron Coubertin to come up with
the modern Olympics.
The Meeting Park commemorated those Olympics in 2012 when hosting the baton relay
celebrations and its also served as a ne arena for gigs in recent times, but for the purists its
the best place on the planet to experience the INVERNESS HIGHLAND GAMES [1]. And this
year, for the rst time ever youll get two opportunities, rst on SAT 19 JUL and then again in
September.
The July Games will see the unveiling of a special commemorative plaque and to ensure that as
many youngsters as possible get the chance to enjoy a little piece of sporting history, entry is
free for all under-12s. Theres a full programme of track and eld events alongside piping and
dancing, as well as the renowned Heavies Competition. On top of all that therell be loads of
stalls and a large clan village. An event with such heritage surely deserves celebrating and nows
the time to reclaim it for another 150 years.
Tickets cost 8 for adults and Under 12s are admitted free. On sale at Inverness Town House
on the eve of the Games and from 9am on Games Day. The gates at Northern Meeting Park will
open at 10.30am.
Wonder what the Invernesians of 1822 would have made of the world of professional wrestling?
Its certainly popular here as the regular RocknWrestle events prove. And fans will be out in
force for one of WWEs biggest names (and a man so famous he even made it onto an episode
of The Simpsons), ROWDY RODDY PIPER [2], when he hosts an evening at IRONWORKS on
MON 14 JUL.
A chap who talks with as much vigour as he wrassles, were promised a live, uncensored Q & A.
Support will be provided by BILLY KIRKWOOD & CHRIS BROOKER with extracts from their sell out
Edinburgh festival show I Am The Tag Team Champions. There will also be a limited number of
VIP tickets available that include a photo opportunity and autograph.

DOUBLE THE FUN TO MARK 150TH ANNIVERSARY
OF THE NORTHERN MEETING PARK
Highland Games have been staged in Inverness since 1822,
but this year Inverness is going to be playing host to TWO
Highland Games one in July and one in September. The
reason for this can be traced back to 1863 when so many
folk wanted to attend the Games organised by the Northern
Meeting that it was decided that something had to be done to
avoid a repeat of the chaotic scenes that were experienced.
The following year, 1864, a very special sporting arena,
Northern Meeting Park the worlds oldest Highland Games
stadium opened its doors for the very rst time. 2014 marks
the 150th Anniversary of the opening of this much loved
venue on the banks of the River Ness which over the years
has seen everything from the legendary Victorian Heavy
Donald Dinnie to the Olympic Torch to the start of a brand
new Millennium greeted with enthusiastic cheers.
UNDER 12S GO FREE!
The July Games will see Games Chieftain Provost ALEX
GRAHAM unveil a very special commemorative plaque
which we feel will become a must see for Highland Games
fans to visit in years to come; and to ensure that as many
youngsters as possible get the chance to enjoy a little piece
of sporting history; the Games Committee have decided
that all Under-12s can come in for free!
TRACK, FIELD, PIPING & DANCING
The programme of events in July will feature a full
programme of track and eld athletics with the Inverness
Harriers once again expected to provide some rst class
competition for everyone to enjoy.
The Inverness Piping Society will once again ensure that
the Games Solo Piping Competition is one of the most
keenly contested in the North of Scotland.
The Highland Dancing competitions at the Inverness
Highland Games are one of the largest to be found
in the North with the Highland Fling, the Sword Dance
and the Mass Highland Fling at the Opening Ceremony
guaranteed to delight and watch out for the special Eve
of Games Highland Dancing Display in Inverness Town
House 78pm organised by the Elizabeth Fraser School of
Highland Dancing.
HEAVIES
The Heavies programme will commence with the Hammer
Throwing at 12.30 and will climax with the ever popular
Tossing The Caber at around 5pm. The event will end
with competitors stepping forward to attempt the 252lb
Stonemasons Stone one of the most di cult challenges
facing Heavies anywhere on the International circuit. This
years Games will also see the debut of the Forge Gym
Strongwoman event at the Games, and anyone who
witnessed the hugely successful Highlands Strongest
Woman contest earlier this year will know just how amazed
folk are going to be. Rumour has it that the competitors
have been secretly practising with Highland Games
Champion Sinclair Patience so dont be surprised to see
organiser Gavin Laird introducing one or two traditional
challenges during the course of the day - as if lifting a car
was not challenging enough.
MUSIC
In addition to all the athleticism on display, this is also a
chance to enjoy the best of Highland music and once
again Margo Maclennan of High Life Highland has gathered
together a fantastic programme of traditional music for
everyone to enjoy. The Games Committee are also delighted
to welcome the CAN-AMERICAN PIPES & DRUMS BAND
to Northern Meeting Park for the rst time and they will be
joining the Inverness Legion and Forres bands on the day.
Formed to tour Scotland in 2012 for the Queens Diamond
Jubilee Year, its members come from across Canada and the
United States. A huge hit when they last visited Inverness,
this is one band you dont want to miss!
CLAN VILLAGE
Throughout the day spectators will be able to explore a
number of interesting exhibitions around the Games eld
including a large clan village organised by the Association
of Highland Clans and Societies; and you can be assured
of the warmest of welcomes if you visit their marquee. If
you do not have a clan you will nd one and everybody is
being asked to sign up to volunteer to carry a torch at the
Associations spectacular Torchlight Procession through
the streets of Inverness on 12 September.
With all this and plenty more
this years INVERNESS HIGHLAND GAMES
are certain to be unmissable!

EDEN COURT FILM 143.indd 4 11/06/2014 13:58
Highland Hospice have launched the
Project Build Appeal
to rebuild their In Patent Unit
The primary aim at Highland Hospice is to provide the
highest quality of care but the In Patient Unit is now over
25 years old and, at half the size suggested by current
guidelines, it no longer oers the standards of privacy,
dignity and choice patients and their families deserve.
Presently there are only four single bedrooms and two
shared rooms in the In Patient Unit, which is based on
Ness Walk in Inverness, and all of these rooms are too
small in size. There is also a lack of space for family
accommodation and bereavement support rooms.
After much thought and consideration it has been decided
that the most eective way to modernise the Hospice is to
demolish the existing unit and rebuild on the same site.
By rebuilding Highland hospice will be able to provide:
N A modern, bright and airy In Patient Unit with nine single
en-suite bedrooms and one shared room which will improve
patient choice and increase the levels of privacy and dignity
oered
N Much needed family accommodation
N Three dedicated counselling rooms for crucial
bereavement support services
N A sanctuary room located at the heart of the new hospice
which will provide a quiet space of contemplation for patients
and families
N The scope to develop a virtual hospice allowing greater
access to hospice care across the Highland community
It is hoped building work will begin in Spring 2015 and
take around 12 months to complete. As the hospice is
being rebuilt on the same site there will be a period of time
when the In Patient Unit will have to decant to a temporary
location at the County Community Hospital in Invergordon.
The total cost of bringing this project to life is 6.5million.
Highland Hospice has committed to funding 2million of
these costs from reserves which have been built up over
a number of years for this purpose, and the Project Build
Appeal has been launched to raise the remaining funds
required to build their new home.
For ideas and information on how to support Highland Hospice and get involved with the Project
Build Appeal please visit www.highlandhospice.org/projectbuild or contact the fundraising
team on projectbuild@highlandhospice.org.uk / 01463 246471

Sporting activity this month will mainly be centred around the extensive HIGHLAND GAMES
season. You can read more about the INVERNESS HIGHLAND GAMES [1] (SAT 19 JUL)
in our centre-page pull-out, but there are also opportunities to take in the competitive
pageantry at FORRES (05 JUL), TOMINTOUL (19 JUL), STRATHCONNON (26 JUL),
DORNOCH (01 AUG) and NEWTONMORE (02 AUG).
If participation is more your thing, then challenges dont come much bigger than the GREAT
GLEN ULTRA MARATHON [2] at Fort William on SAT 05 JUL. Starting from Neptunes
Staircase outside Fort William, the route follows a series of Glens to Inverness. Youll
run through some of the most stunning scenery that Scotland has to offer, whether down
at the side of lochs and rivers, or climbing up through forests to the top of the hills which
make the dramatic and vast glens. Runners then have 24 hours to cover the 72 miles
to Inverness where the race will nish at Inverness Athletics Stadium. Easy peasy lemon
squeezy. More details at greatglenultra.com
The rst half of the month will see the conclusion of the World Cup (with plucky Greece
seeing off Iran in the nal - we guarantee it) after which, if you need a football x before
SPFL 2014-15 gets underway on 09 Aug, both Inverness Caledonian Thistle and Ross
County will be playing a series of pre-season friendlies. ICT take on CLACH (02 JUL) and
ELGIN (12 JUL) with more to be arranged. Check the club website at ictfc.com for info.
Ross County are playing all their friendlies away, at BRORA (02 JUL), CLACH (05 JUL),
NAIRN (09 JUL) and KEITH (12 JUL). The County website is at rosscountyfootballclub.
co.uk. Rumour has it that Rangers will be up here on a training camp, but it remains to be
seen whether theyll dare to take on our top ight clubs.
If crickets more your thing, the INVERNESS WELFARE CRICKET LEAGUE [3] continues in
FRASER PARK until August. 20/20 games are played on Mon, Tues, Wed and Thurs nights
from 6:30pm till about 8:30pm and theyre always looking out for new players to join

As you will see throughout this issue, July is the
time once again to don our kilts and muscles and
get down to the 150-yr-old Northern Meeting Park to
chuck ridiculously heavy items up in the air. Yes, its
the Inverness Highland Games and to celebrate,
we spoke with a real rising young star of the sport,
27 year old SINCLAIR PATIENCE
where were you born/where do you live? I was
born and live in Raigmore, raised in Tain, studied in
Edinburgh and am now based back in Inverness.
WHAT DO YOU DO FOR A LIVING? Having
previously worked as Development Ofcer with
Highland RFC, I am now based within Coach
Education for Scottish Rugby.
When did you start competing in highland
games heavy events? I have competed in the
Highland Games since the age of 16. I used to tour
the local Highland Games and compete in the junior
events before progressing to the Glenddich Under
25 league at the age of 20.
Who inspired you/have you any heavy heroes?
My father competed in the discus throw for Scotland
in the 1986 Commonwealth Games (the year I was
born) and then progressed to win the Professional

training? Between throwing and gym work I will
spend around 10 hours training per week then
during the summer months I compete almost every
weekend.

represent Scotland in my rst professional World

Ken Kelman: Sheepish thoughts. . .
Driving along the A96 the other
week I noticed some sheep ambling
about in a eld which reminded me
that Id once assisted at the birth of
a set of twin lambs. This inevitably
got me thinking .. one .. why cant I
just look at the woolly animals and
admire them for what they are, why
must my brain insist on thinking
about everything? and; two did
I assist at the birthing of a pair of
lambs or did I assist at the birthing
of a sheep? My point being, in such a
situation, who is it that gets birthed?
Is the mother or the offspring? I
know what youre thinking - why not
just look it up in a dictionary? With
respect, might I remind you I was
driving along the A96 and at the time
there was no such tome available*.

The debate occupied much of my
internal monologue for most of the
journey from Nairn to Forres, then
I noticed that the Bervie Chipper
seemed to have re-opened. I swear
it had shut the last time I drove
past. Not only was it open but there
was, I think, a poster that seemed
to be offering some sort of loyalty
deal - buy 9 meals get the 10th
free, I thought it said. Immediately
and unbidden my mind moved on to
pondering the vast heap of sh and
chips youd have consumed by the
time you could take advantage of
such a deal. Its all very well drinking
4 cups of coffee to get the fth for
nothing, but NINE sh suppers? -
thats a serious amount of chippage
- by my reckoning over 7 pounds
of potato! (assuming an average
portion size of 13oz which is what
the internet tells me I can assume).

By the time this has all been thought
about and calculated Im out the
other side of Forres and back
amongst the elds of lambs. As I
watch them gambol another thought
strikes. You know that famous
painting of the dogs playing poker,
the one people either love or hate?
Yes you do - it was on the wall of that
lovely boarding house you stayed at
in Blackpool. Well, wouldnt it make
more sense if it were lambs playing
poker - then at least itd be a pun?
gambolling / gambling no?

*I have since consulted a dictionary


and it says this: noun: Birthing -
the action or process of giving birth
.. A midwife allows mothers to feel
more comfortable and calm during
birthing so I guess its the sheep
thats birthed, not the lambs they
are merely born.

After a scintillating few months of theatrical experiences its perhaps no surprise that
things rather quieten down in July, though there are still a few dramatic spectacles worth
checking out. One of them is A MIDSUMMER NIGHTS DREAM [1] at CAWDOR CASTLE
on 06 JUL. A play performed outdoors with a castle backdrop is never to be sniffed at
and this production, by London Contemporary Theatre should do justice to Shakespeares
engaging yarn about a tangled love story on the eve of a Royal Wedding.
And if that gives you a taste for al fresco drama, head along to BRODIE CASTLE on 27 JUL
for Heartbreaks production of PETER PAN [2], giving you the chance to join one of the
gangs and help Peter in his quest to bring the dastardly villain Captain Hook and his pirate
crew to justice. Its for your proverbial 5-to-95 year olds.
Back indoors therell be plenty of entertainment to be had from an evening with ELAINE
C SMITH [3] at EDEN COURT on 25 JUL. The actress and comedian, who was most
recently seen in the Susan Boyle biographical production I Dreamed A Dream, has called
the show STILL STANDINGJUST! and hilarious anecdotes about a glittering career will
undoubtedly be the order of the night.
Talking of glitter, therell be barrels of it at the long-awaited return of THE LADYBOYS OF
BANGKOK [4] to EDEN COURT on 29-30 JUL. The unstoppable appeal of the troupe raises
all sorts of questions about how it ts into a society still plagued by homophobia, but if
youre judging it on mere spectacle theres no denying that the show, called RED HOT
KISSES will be gloriously impervious to any notion of quiet reserve.
Theres sure to be a fair share of cross dressing at the sold-out MONTY PYTHON reunion
shows in London. If youve not been fortunate enough to get a ticket all is not lost as the
whole thing is being screened as a cinematic Encore performance at EDEN COURT on
31 JUL. We rather hope theyll confound all expectations and do absolutely none of the old
stuff. That would be truly revolutionary.

MON 23 JUN
THE MOUSETRAP @ Eden
Court Empire, 8pm. The
Mousetrap is famous around

performances its a play to
be proud of. And to celebrate
60 incredible years on stage,
its going on tour for the first
time, to give you a once in
a life-time opportunity to
see this masterpiece here
in Inverness. The scene is
set when a group of people
gathered in a country house
cut off by the snow discover,
to their horror, that there is
a murderer in their midst.
Who can it be? One by one
the suspicious characters
reveal their sordid pasts until
at the last, nerve-shredding
moment the identity and the
motive are finally revealed.
In her own inimitable style,
Agatha Christie has created
an atmosphere of shuddering
suspense and a brilliantly
intricate plot where murder
lurks around every corner.

Aberdeen, sold as a labourer
to a farmer in Pennsylvania

enslaved by native Americans.
Unbelievably, thats just the

IN MY FATHERS WORDS
@ Eden Court OneTouch,
8pm. In an old wooden
house by the shore of Lake
Ontario in Canada, Louis
battles with his elderly father,
Don, whose decline into
dementia is gradually robbing
him of the ability to speak.
Louis professional success
as a university teacher of
Classics belies an emotional
inarticulacy which matches his
fathers inability to express
himself in words. Into their
lives comes Flora, the carer
that Louis employs to look
after Don. Flora is of Scottish
heritage and a good listener,
and she understands that
the nonsense which Don
speaks is fragmented Gaelic,
opening up an ocean of
revelations and buried family
history spanning the Atlantic.
In My Fathers Words is a
beautiful play about identity
- national and personal - and
language, and the utter
indivisibility between the two.

SIX MONTH SMILES is a modern, short term orthodontic
treatment which we have recently started ofering at:
The treatment involves having clear brackets with discrete
white wires placed on your teeth. The brace will gently alter
the position of the teeth to a more aesthetic position.
If your teeth are misaligned in any way - crooked, twisted,
spaced, worn down in unusual places or if you have had braces
in the past and your teeth have relapsed leaving you unhappy
with your smile then SIX MONTH SMILES could be just the
option for you.
OPPOSITE are examples of before and after images for 3
separate patients to give you an idea of what is possible >>>
SIX MONTH SMILES uses new technology to provide a simple
and very efective solution to give you a straight, healthy and
beautiful smile without having to remove healthy teeth or
wear braces for several years.
SOME ADVANTAGES INCLUDE:
Average treatment time is 6 months
Clear brackets & wires are barely visible
Specialist Six Month Smiles patient tray kits make
appointment times short & comfortable.
Low forces are involved meaning treatment is more
comfortable & your teeth are kept healthy.
Short overall treatment time means hygiene can be
maintained more easily.
Less expensive than conventional orthodontic treatment.
Over the next 6 months we will be taking you step by step
through the protocol to show you just how simple it is to
achieve the smile you have always wanted.

Making The Most Of You:
beauty
Summer beauty problems - solved!
Avoiding melt-down and burn-up under the sun. . .
It is during the summer months, when we shed our layers and show o more skin,
that we worry most about our appearance. Yet the sun can bring its own set of
beauty di culties. Heres how to solve a few of them.
Melting Make Up: Your make up routine has to start with a sun screen - dont let your beautiful has has
skin get damaged. Go for a matte nish and give it time to absorb before applying makeup. Maybe
swap your foundation and blusher for a tinted moisturiser - some can even double as a sunscreen.
You really want to avoid that panda eyes look, so make sure you switch to a clear or waterproof
mascara. Keeping a pressed powder compact in your bag is an excellent way to freshen up your
face after being outside. Less is more! When its just sweltering out, you might just want to wear less
makeup. Summertime suits a more minimal make up style so try out a new look.
Parched Lips: Its not just the cold weather that is a problem for lips. Drier climates can
still cause puckers to shrivel and time outdoors can lead to burning. To keep your lips in top
condition avoid medicated menthol or camphor-based balms - these formulas will dry lips
over time. Look for salves and glosses with soothing ingredients like shea butter and beeswax.
SPF is also a mustespecially when wearing high-shine gloss, which tends to attract more UV
rays because of its reective shimmer.
Frizzy Hair: Summer can mean hotter, more humid airwhich can wreak havoc with frizz-
prone hair. Protect your hair with a uv spray and when you are sunbathing use a leave-in
conditioner for extra protection. When styling, use a ceramic blow-dryer with a diuser for fast,
smooth results and less heat damage. Finish with a product that is designed for frizz taming.
Heat Rash: When temperatures and humidity levels rise, skin heats up and ushing can occur
on any area of the body with or without a bumpy, inamed appearance.
To counter this use a topical over-the-counter hydrocortisone cream in most cases this should
bring down the inammation in 3 days. If that doesnt help you may need to see a doctor for a
prescription-strength hydrocortisone or antifungal, depending on what caused the rash.
Embattled Bikini Line: For many it is the only time of year the problem arises, but if you
are intending to get into even the most modest of swimsuits then you are going to need to
sort your bikini line. The most recommended method is using a sharp razor every other day,
with calming balm afterwards. If you prefer the longer term solution of waxing then this is one
area you should really only trust to the professionals - the repercussions of DIY can be beyond
painful (and yes, I do say this from personal experience!)

River House Restaurant
1 Greig Street, Inverness 01463 222 033
Its not the best of times to be
a visitor to Inverness. Unless of
course youve always been of the
opinion that the citys riverside
vista would be immeasurably
improved by half-built walls, wire
fences and the general detritus
of a building site. And, to top
it o, the sound of birdsong
replaced by the deafening clatter
of electrical generators and
power drills. Such is the state of
aairs as the interminable ood
barrier construction continues
towards that golden day when
everything will be nished and
well all be safe from rogue
tsunamis.
Until then, a gentle stroll down
by the Ness involves negotiating
endless diversions, avoiding
puddles of cement and hardly
daring to take your eyes o the
ground in front of you in case
you trip over or fall down a hole.
Which means that many of the
restaurants lining the bank arent
perhaps getting the attention
they deserve, either because
people fail to notice or arent
that thrilled by the prospect
of dining within earshot of
shuddering heavy machinery.
Which is a shame because, as
weve demonstrated with recent
reviews, theres much to be said
for almost all the establishments
along the river.
And one of the most well-
established is River House which
for over a decade has been an
integral part of the local dining
scene. Not just the cooking of
Cornwall-born chef/proprietor
Allan Ale Little, but also
his evangelical dedication to
procuring the very best local
ingredients, encouragement
to others in the form of
extensive work with schools and
involvement in the setting up of
the Highland Food Festival.
One of the good guys then,
something thats evident from
the cheery welcome you get
as you enter the intimate,
immaculate restaurant. At
lunchtime there are only a
couple of other people present,
but that gives us a chance to
take in the lovely surroundings.
Theres a an open kitchen so
its rather like the chef coming
round to your house to cook
if your house was spotless
with a well-appointed bar
and decorated with the quiet
condence of something likely
to end up on the cover of
an interiors magazine. There
are also strategically placed
cookbooks from enduringly
credible (rather than willfully hip)
joints to emphasise the ethic
behind proceedings.
First things rst. Unlike some of
the other riverbank restaurants,
this place isnt cheap. But it is
fairly priced for the quality of the
ingredients and the strength of
the cooking. That said, there
is a two-course set menu
for 16.50 from which my
55 55
EATING OUT
EATING OUT 143 RIVER HOUSE.indd 5 10/06/2014 19:19
companion orders, leaving me
to explore the la carte. And
the quality of whats in store is
apparent right from the start
with his Seafood Bruschetta.
A very generous mix of king
prawn, squid and mussels in a
tasty tomato and basil sauce
atop the toasted bread is almost
big enough to be a main and
polished o with no complaints.
My bowl of Shetland Mussels
in Cider, Cream and Apple is
equally impressive. Perfectly
cooked mussels ensure
they retain their moistness
and avour, while the bold
addition of apple slices to the
accompanying creamy broth is
a masterstroke, the sweetness
of the fruit working well with
the saltiness of the shellsh.
And theres still enough of the
freshly baked bread delivered
(with rather chic bottles of water)
to our table before we ordered,
to soak up the creamy juices.
Quite possibly the nest bowl of
mussels Ive had in my life and
Im no stranger to the molluscs
appeal.
My companions main course
of Linguine With Wild
Mushrooms is pronounced
to be perfectly ne, although
perhaps without the dramatic
appeal of his starter. Good
pasta, nice mushrooms, a drizzle
of tru e oil and parmesan
shavings mean that its one of
the simplest dishes on the menu
and had he opted for the meat
or (particularly) sh option there
might have been more of a wow
factor.
My main of Pan Seared
Fillet of Hake is certainly
a thing of beauty. As a sh
sadly underappreciated here
yet adored by the Spanish,
the presentation is suitably
inspired by the colours of the
Mediterranean, the sh on top of
saut potatoes and accompanied
by a zingy salad of squid, cherry
tomatoes, spinach, capers,
orange and chorizo. Hakes a
magnicent, tasty sh and here
its cooked perfectly leaving you
to wonder just why its not more
popular in this country.
Puddings are spectacularly
good, literally so in the case of
my companions choice - Other
Halfs Pavlova - named after
the creator of the fab meringue
carapace with a creamy centre,
drizzled in an amazing salted
caramel and accompanied by a
dinky pot of Crme Chantilly.
For some reason, since Ive never
been the biggest fan of nuts, I
nd myself ordering the Baklava
Tart, an original twist on the
Turkish classic. And while its not
entirely converted me, theres no
denying the delightful balance
of avours as the nuts and dates
are bound together with honey
and topped with a crumble. Its
clever, inventive cooking and its
clear, as Little comes and chats
to us after weve nished, that he
genuinely cares about what he
creates and how people respond.
River House is a genuine labour
of love and a place where
youre guaranteed great food,
ne service and cosily elegant
surroundings. Something that
all the building sites in the world
can never hide.

Retro Fun . . .
Rubiks Cube and Polaroid home accessories
It has been 40 years since a young Professor of architecture named Erno Rubik created a
puzzle that was not supposed to be possible. His solid cube with colourful stickers on its
sides, twisted and turned - and thus emerged the rst Rubiks Cube.
Erno always thought of the Cube primarily as an object of art, a mobile sculpture, so the
fact that it became one of the worlds most popular puzzles was a bit of a uke. How
appropriate then that the little cube that represented a decade, has now birthed a range
of arty home decor. Our personal favourite is the Rubiks Cube Desk Light which will
not only illuminate your desk but is also a fully functioning, twisting, turning cube - the
perfect distraction from your work!
Just take the cube light o its base and it will give you 2 hours of playing time. The
rechargeable light can be mounted onto the triangular base and connected directly to a
power source using the USB cable.
Available from www.iwantoneofthose.com 29.99
And if the Rubiks cube dened the 80s then surely the Polaroid Instant Camera dened
the 70s (although technically they were launched in the 40s). We do have to love this
completely superuous addition to kitchen gadgetry - the Polaroid Instant Cheese
Slicer. We couldnt better the cheesy puns from the website: Looking (and sort-
of functioning) like a classic Polaroid Camera; simply drag this analogue utensil over
the top of your favourite fromage and watch as the slices begin to develop. You can
now transform that cold, hard block of Red Leicester into a stack of delicious cheesy
memories.

process - its a good idea to check out
your credit rating before applying for a
mortgage. The role of the credit score is
to try to predict your behaviour, which
means that those who have a poor credit
score may sufer, as may those that have
no credit history at all.

diferent elements; appearance on the
electoral role, defaulted payments, missed
credit cards payments, any county court
judgements or bankruptcy, employment
position, salary, marital status and age.

your credit score to ensure your fles are
