All that Glitters is Not Gold —

In my previous post – ‘Sublime’ – it didn’t occur to me at the time that the mountains on the horizon where wild goats and herds of deer rome free are in fact on the 3300 acre Aberuchill Estate bought by Putin’s pal Vladimir Lison in 2005 as per another of my recent posts ‘Who Owns Scotland’.

Turns out that Russian oligarch Mr Lison is one of the world’s richest geezers and has been sanctioned by the Yanks since 2018. Our Scottish Government is just getting round to investigate him – having handed his estate the best part of a million quid in agricultural subsidies in the past few years.

You couldn’t make it up — 🙄
