    Tesco, they also have a fine selection of other fruits.

    Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before.

    I find that they are not ripe up here until October!

    Not Caithness but a few years ago I saw lots of them at Portgower just south of Helmsdale as you go from the village down to the sea. Easy walk down hill and many bushes in easy reach.

    Wherever you pick them, don’t pick lower than a dog can cock it’s leg!
