Quick and simple tonight, lots of pics even although the lens was grubby, I only just noticed.
Been mad August, water still annoyingly refuses to fill the Dry Harbour tanks so lots of visits, yachts still refuse to pay the £1, nothing new. Stags are still hiding, but we did get George over, we did get our stuck creels up and we did get a stag to-day. So here are the pics, been up since 6, walked 8 miles up North and back and did loads including bogging the digger. Danish visitors tomorrow.
Up North, Looking for Stags
Stuck Creels arriving home
The Main Man Up North, Ricky T
A Full House and only £3 in the box
I have to be fair Ian of off Yacht Eyn Hallow the Big White one on the left is a good Rona supporter, he’s been coming for a few years, sadly his dog passed away since I saw him in June but he is here with his new model, she’s called Rona!! Ian always supports us well and is a gentleman, more than I can………………………
At last creels fixed
Time for bed!!
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.
