Meals on Wheels

Days on Rona are pretty full and today was no exception. I prepared the MV Rona for a day trip with cottage visitors, fibreglassed the Wayfarer and made oatcakes all before 10.30am!! Then went out with the guests on the boat to pick up prawn and crab creels.

We toured about fishing for a while saw the stags on Garbh Eilean, poirpoises and gannets fishing, the sun shone but the rain wasn’t far away. The creels weren’t too productive though, on returning to Big Harbour Kenny and Gemma (www.torridonseatours.com) were alongside with another boat load of visitors from Shieldaig.

There was a yacht in too, Raphy G. As usual they did not pay their landing dues, nothing new and another black mark for the yachting fraternity. How is it they can read a chart but cannot read a notice at the top of the pier telling them (politely) about landing fees!!!!

Not to worry we finished the day with an excellent meal at Escape cottage with our very good ex yachting friends,nice whisky. We took the meal to them on the bike!!

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.
