One From The Files

Here we have a map I found (again) whilst I was looking through the Rona History  files. I was telling Julia and Julie (Calum the Road’s daughter) about the three or four files of Rona history we had and I had always wanted to show Julia this map but keep forgetting. I also wanted to get a good copy before it falls apart, but with the wonder of internet and digital cameras, it makes life a little easier. Next time I go to Inverness I’ll get it copied.

Some of the Gaelic names have been adjusted and I think that was done before my time so I cannot say who did it or where it came from. Maybe one day it will come back to me.

Map No 2

Map No 2

I now remember as I am writing this that there may be an original in the house, I’m off to look. This one was scanned and stuck together.

Cannot find the original but I am sure it will turn up!!!!!

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.
