One foot in the Brae

The swirling pavement cobbles look almost finished, but the central new road looks as though another few weeks might be needed to complete phase one of the Brae streetscaping. The finished article might well be safer for pedestrians but at the moment you have to dodge the contractors machinery. A reversing lorry full of tarmac shows how narrow the new road is going to be; a parked delivery van or lorry will bring traffic to a standstill when the road opens once more.
Brave tourists peer into shop windows as they scuttle past trying to get away from the noise and dust as quickly as possible, I don’t suppose many mementos of a Nairn holiday will be purchased from the Brae today – anyone for a fridge magnet?
