The Sheikh of Ascot builds a Scottish home

Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashi
You know, I've only recently found out about Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum of Ascot. He is from Dubai and is very rich of course. He recently suffered an outrageous slight at the hands of Highland Council planners and SNH (that's Scottish Natural Haverers by the way) who wanted to refuse planning permission for a two-storey lodge overlooking Loch Duich, on the road to Skye. It will boast two wings, 15 ensuite bedrooms and a penthouse master bedroom, a private helicopter pad and its own electricity substation - now that is pure STYLE! With two wings it will look like a bird or an aircraft.

Anyway the good local Councillors overturned the recommendations to refuse the dream home for all the right reasons. So well done Mohammed or Hammie as I like to call him. But the story doesn't stop there with a bunch of hillwalkers and bird watchers getting sent to the back of the class. Did you know that this website of mine gets hits from all round the world? Yes, and some of the recent hits have been from Kenya, Tasmania, Iraq AND Dubai! It seems obvious that Hammie has been looking at my site and will know that I am about to enter the world of the consultant. So it is only a matter of time before he is on the blower asking me to work for him.

Thanks Hammie in anticipation and good luck with your dream home!
