Gordon Campbell Independent Candidate For Westminster Checks Out East Caithness

Gordon Campbell is well underway with his canvassing around Caithness, Sutherland and Easter Ross.  On Thursday he set out to see East Caithness and meet people along the way.  He checked out many aspects from businesses, harbours, museums and even public toilets at Dunbeath.  He chatted with ladies at Laidhay croft and Latheron Post Office and other people he met along the way.  He has been round before and has stood in several elections without success but this has not dampened his enthusiasm for campaigning.  He lives in Dornoch but often lives for few days locally when campaigning.  He based himself at the Portland Arms Hotel for his East Caithness days.
