Yacht Jesper was in yesterday, sadly they wouldn’t pay their harbour dues. The cost of the boat I guess and of course they are just poor NHS workies so we live in hope on their next visit that we’ll get the couple of pounds out of them.
They had a good day though, they went for a walk to the lighthouse. But to pass the time they went past our holiday cottages to do some peeping through the windows at the visitors. Dave and Jane were dressed and reading quietly when the three peeping toms disturbed them.
Ah well just another day on a remote island.
About Bill Cowie
I've been living on the island since April 2002, alone for the first 5 years, my partner L joined me in 2007. We manage the Island for a Danish family who bought the Island in the early 90's.
Their hopes for the Island are to make it self sufficient supporting its inhabitants and that is where we come in.
We look after the stock, 3 holiday cottages, machinery, boat and of course the visitors.
It is pretty challenging but it is a beautiful place to live and work, we love it and strangely enough we love it even more in the depths of winter when all is quiet apart from the gales and rain.
We do a bit of fishing, stock work, stalking deer and loads of other stuff. We have good support from lots of people whom we have met over the years and have become involved in the Island. Too many to mention here but keep an eye on the blog, they'll be there for sure in the future.
