Back To Normal

After the excitement of yesterday it is a dreich day here, with a promise of better weather we hold our breath. I have two trips to Raasay to-day but it is too rough to try that, so a wee delay is in order. Catching up on yesterday’s doings it seems ages ago I was fencing or repairing the quad. But days just roll on here.

First thing I found the sump gaurd had been ripped off the quad, so rather than scrabble around underneath it I hoisted the ATV up, a much better working position.

Then it was onto the new fence but after doing a bit of that, chatting to our visitors and digging round the gates. I had to go to Dry Harbour with L. So I took the tools and fitted the lock to the new door and the perspex to the window. Almost done there.

Nothing for it then but back to the house for herrings that Kenny had supplied last week, delicious.

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.
