Dont be confused by any earlier services signs on the A9 a few miles before this B9176 turn.

Skiach Lorry Park

THe Skiach Lorry Park offers FREE parking for all HGV's.

If you are a new visitor (HGV) as you round the bend to the Skiach you will be faced by a sign that says NO HGV in big letters. It does not mean what it says! what it should say is simply "Car Entrance". A new HGV on arrival seeing this may well think that HGV's are NOT WELCOME at this service station. The fact that the car entrance is large and this board is very very prominent almost demanding that you heed it, suggesting it is making an announcement for the Skiach Services and not just saying, please hgv don't use this entrance. The fact that there is another sign (not as large letters) across the way sign saying hgv entrance thata way is by the way. Its like proof reading a book, if your involved in it you cant see the faults.

In Japan they are subject to rigid expectations about
their behavior and need to conform; in contrast, while abroad they may engage in extreme forms
of dress or dye their hair blond etc. The silver
coins were the dimes, quarters, half dollars, and dollar coins that were made up until 1964.
You can simply think of it as input file and output file.
