Later in the evening we had the Hebridean and Wildlife Trust boat arrive and it ‘parked’ right in the harbour entrance, they landed some of their passengers who wandered about for a while. We headed out to sea to lift some creels.

Unfortunately we hit a snag and were very late getting in, but were ok with the assistance of Calum.

Back to the house and an even later night tailing squatties, George the cat always appears when the squatties come ashore.

Next day we put a few creels back out and lifted our small fleet of 9 lobster pots, we were pleased to see a lobster in the first creel.

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.
