Rona Invaded

To-day started quietly even with 4 yachts in the bay, overcast although the cloud was high and thin. Ronan Martin called in, then Kevin came over from the cottages for some silicone to seal the leaking shower, ta Kevin. Before I knew it, it was 12.30 and Spindrift arrived with a load, by this time it was starting to clear and a very hot day was on the cards. Round about then the 4 kayakers who were in the bunkhouse left, all washed and dry.

Afternoon brought the yachties ashore for walks, showers and washing machines. With the day trippers it was like Piccadilly Circus Then the yachts started to arrive, before long there was 8 in the Bay.

We had a very well know pop star off one of them who came up to the house and asked could he have a barbie on the shore, I had a long chat with him. He was very interested (and supportive) as to what we are doing on Rona, he may come back stalking!!!!  They had their barbie on the shore and shortly after that left leaving 7 yachts in for the night.

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.
