Cold Wind But Good weather

As promised the blog has changed, here is a selection of the last couple of weeks events on Rona, we have been to Portree for new tyres for the bike, stores and sheep feed.

The weather has been relatively good, dry days with a cold Northerly wind since a long time, so long now we cannot remember when it started. But it ain’t going away soon by the look of things. Tomorrow our ferry with cottage guests will be delayed a bit but I have every confidence in the Seaflower.

Last weekend the highlight was antler collecting, we like to collect up the cast antlers to give us an idea of what is about and to see if there is anything special on our Island.

So last Sunday on a beautiful calm day I took the RIB to the South end and had a look around.

Back in the Bay, there were Seals, Terns, Geese, Great Northern Divers and lots more. Plenty opportunities on a lovely day to take photos, although the big lens is getting really heavy. Must get a lighter one.


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.
