If you look at the header left hand side you will see the Island cat George at the top of the hill, ‘Acaseid Mhor’ . He’s busy just now patrolling all night because it is so light and of course he sleeps all day.
After a lazy start it was paperwork and emails. With the weather so good it is difficult to stay in but it has to be done and it felt cold and damp outside almost like a November morning but as usual once the cloud thinned it warmed up. Later in the day I took the mower and strimmer to Escape to cut their grass. Again with no rain the grass has only needed cutting twice this year of course the deer help. I hear the crofters are buying hay in for the Outer Isles stock as there is very little growth.
I met the holiday visitors at Dry Harbour and organised a Supper Club for Wednesday, so it looks like a cooking day tomorrow for some of it. I mentioned I might go stalking tonight and James and Emma were very keen to go so we’ll see later on.
On returning to Big Harbour Menno and Janie were in their office preparing for a trip round Skye tomorrow.
As we were chatting the yachts started to arrive, with strong winds over the weekend many were holed up somewhere and all of a sudden the Inner Sound and Sound of Raasay were full of sails. The count so far tonight is 6 there may be more, I’m off stalking.
