Woman who went out shopping for Christmas Turkey still not home
Going out to the shops to buy a Turkey is a rather normal thing for most to do at Christmas.
It started off that way for Kay Ure who left her house two days before Christmas to buy a Turkey but the Ure's live in a remote home in the Scottish Highlands and she has not been able to get home yet because of bad weather and snow blocked roads.
The couple live in a lighthouse Keeper's cottage at Cape Wrath, on Britain's north western tip, where they run a cafe.
On the way to the shops she had a 11-mile car drive, a boat trip and a bus ride but when she tired to return, the road to the lighthouse was blocked by heavy snow, and Mrs Ure has been stranded 11 miles from home ever since.
She has spoken to her Husband John on the phone every night and it's now the weather outlook is looking better that she may be able to return home come Monday.
She spent Christmas in a friend's caravan in Durness, while her husband had the company of their six dogs, and two walkers who popped into the cafe.
A wife who went to the shops to buy a turkey for Christmas dinner still hasn't made it home after being cut off by heavy snow.
Kay Ure, 54, left her house in the remote Scottish Highlands 15 days ago on a shopping trip to Inverness.
But thick snow and blocked roads have left it impossible for her to return to husband John and the lighthouse keeper's cottage they share in Cape Wrath, Sutherland, at Britain's north-western tip.
The cafe owner is stranded 11 miles away in Durness where she is staying in a friend's caravan.
But Mrs Ure hasn't given up on the idea of Christmas dinner with her partner of more than 30 years.
She told the Sunday Post newspaper: "I think it will be a few days yet as the road from our home is dangerous.
"I'm looking forward to a belated Christmas dinner but it might be Burns' Night (January 25) before I get to eat it."
