No Time to Read The Paper

Calum and crew arrived with stores and a newspaper, the P&J was sold out but the Times was much appreciated, Ta. Good to see MV Kestrel back.

MV Kestrel Arrives.

The idea was to check out electronic stuff I did over the winter while EA, Calum’s daughter and her partner went for a walk. First off up to the sheds and larder and as work progressed problems arose, cut a long story short 4 hours later we were no further ahead and then by a process of elimination we found a crushed wire, success and a sigh of relief.

Scratching Heads.

Almost finished we took a run around the electrics and had a look at windmills, all well so it was a relaxed lunch in front of Rona Lodge.

Lunch is Served.

It looks ok for a Tuesday Jubilee lunch and no rain.  After lunch back to the electric survey and more visitors, an unexpected visit from MV Spindrift was followed by three yachts coming in and loads of kayakers. Yacht MacAferty booked the mooring but Yacht Finistere picked it up so confusion reigned, and another yacht had picked it up but hogged it for a few hours then left which is not so good because it keeps an overnight off it. However all was well as I moved Yacht F to the pontoon and the owners Colin and Sue were happy to have an easier disembark.

It has been a pretty full on day, stretched at times but enjoyable in the glorious weather we are enjoying, roll on tomorrow, L tells me we are having a Supper Club, OH OH!!!!

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.
