Here they are, arrived at the weekend. We had 396 overnight visits last year, so three down 393 to go. Seems like yesterday they went away.
Early Morning Sheep Walk
More tomorrow, there is a landing craft coming so we have been flat out. Needless to say lots of issues but as usual we are taking them in our stride. The sheep/lambs have been ok I guess but it was a bit of a start to have been invaded this weekend, kayakers too. But they are all late, the weather has held them at bay.
All for now
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.
