Herrings arrived yesterday, not in the sea but on a boat!! Bait for the creels, on defrosting the box to-day I thought that they looked pretty good so I pickled a dozen or so. Hopefully they’ll taste as good as the prawns they are for catching.
Been a very, very cold day, NE Wind, odd showers one yacht in, ‘Silver Bear’ from Isle Oronsay. Had a chat with then and they gave us good support, buying some shellfish and venison. It was the last piece left in the freezer. More coming very soon
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.
