Can’t blog because of the constant stream from the head, gets in the way. But I thought I’d upload yesterdays picture of the day and last nights sunset plus the Basking shark Kevin’s boatload saw.

Basking Shark

It’s a beauty and it has been reported breeching, swimming round yachts and staying right beside boats for a long time.

Last night we went out and fished with the Escape cottage visitors, The Olivers. We had a great night and had some lovely views.

Young Stags, South of Rona

Later, very much later we tried for Pollock of off the West side but no luck. The sunset was not as spectacular as the other night but it was pretty good.

Sunset over Staffin

All for now, off to try and beat the hayfever into submission.

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.
