Everybody is talking about it, The Weather, it’s really great. It is 9 o’clock Thursday (at least I think it is Thursday, there’s been some debate about that to-day) and I’m trying to make sense of this blogging thingy. I guess i’ll have to phone the end of the road.

Practice will I hope make it better.

Well to-day was a good one and I’m bushed so the sunset will have to wait for another day, looks like it will be a cracker.

This morning at 6.30 am it was stunning, flat calm as I crept out past the yachts to have a couple of hours fishing.


Then back in to get sorted for the guests who wanted a tour around the Island. We headed up North past a few porpoises then picked up three Minke Whales having a feeding frenzy. Back to base to find a ready made cue for showers, stores, seafood, stamps, postcards and of course the wifi. 


Kenny arrived with MV Seaflower with a crowd from Shieldaig who took off walking to Church Cave (or Giant’s Cave as it is sometimes known). So we had a yarn, enjoyed the sun then lunch. We’d just finished when we got a call, one of Kenny’s visitors had taken a tumble and was bleeding badly from a head wound. Shot off on the bike and found the casualty being walked back by two yachties, well done guys. We took John onto Ronalodge and cleaned him up, turns out he is a retired Doctor who practised in A&E!!!


He was good patient. I went to the boat later to find he had recovered and was enjoying his lunch. Seaflower left later than usual but no one was complaining on a day like this.

Only 6 yachts in tonight but I think we will be bombed out this weekend. 

Now where is Paul Camilli’s number!!!!!!

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.
