So It Begins

Lisa and Linzi Cutting the Ribbon for the Opening of The Mission House

Here we are with the first guests of the year in the newly re-furbished Mission House (Formerly known as Seascape and Skyescape). Lisa and Linzi are regular visitors with their wee dog Maisie and they were delighted to be here after moving their booking quite a few times.

In an effort to keep up with the blog I’m going to concentrate on the pictures and have little writing. With so much on it is a sometimes neglected task and pictures speak louder than words.

The Lockdown has lifted, the cottages are open, we are almost fully booked. The yachts have not arrived yet although we did have one during Lockdown and one last week.

The weather is changeable with no grass growing but the lambs are getting fat on the bags of sheep feed from Harbro. Applenet, our local internet connection provider whom we host the mast for were over this week and all now working fine.

The generator that we bought in 2019 is having issues, a Monday morning one by the look of it and that is next weeks job, stripping it down to find the oil leaks. Vaccination in Portree on Tuesday but shopping tomorrow. So a busy week ahead, enjoy last weeks photos.

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.
