New House Start

Here’s the Spanish John arriving with the third load of building material, last Monday. One more to go this coming Tuesday and that’s it until Hugh goes away with his digger’s and machinery. The pictures below are back to front, just the way WordPress loaded them!!! But you can work it out. The load on this L/c was not typical and we had some fun shifting everything, especially the container. Anyway it is now in place and looking good.

The Daily Photo

This picture was to-day in the pouring rain, we got the container seated and then Hugh dug out rock, much more of that to come.

The steel came too so we’re almost there. Been an extremely busy time since our few days away in Edinburgh which seems like long ago. Lots of yachts visiting  but due to all the machinery working we have had to close the Lodge down but I’m sure the yachting fraternity can do without our wifi and venison for a wee while.

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.
