All About Stalking

Not much to report to-day apart from a 12 hour day looking for Rona stags. We saw a few but not until late in the day did we find a good group of them. First thing this morning we went South,

we came onto 12 in total but nothing near or close. They were all far away. We are looking to find them because we have a cull figure to reach but at this time they are pretty elusive. The story about our deer is all on the Isle of Rona Website.

After lunch Kenny and Gemma Torridon Sea Tours arrived so we pressed Kenny into service and he dropped us up North to save us the walk, excellent!

Needless to say after many hours walking over very rough terrain we found a good group which was very interesting. Lots to look at and lots to assess. After our marathon  we headed back to the Lodge just in time to boil up some prawns we got to-day, all in all a tiring day. 3 yachts in tonight, I had to move one Irish Yachtie away because he was parked over the mooring, it happens all the time, needless to say one of Mark’s yachts from Isle of Skye Yachts picked it up. Just as well we moved the Irishman on otherwise Rona would have missed out on the tenner.

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.
