A view on Fishing,Community and Life on the NW coast of Scotland

Took Dougal and Co up the road for their walk, dropping Ruairidh at Alan’s to discuss piping for later in the day. Went in for a cup of tea and a chat with Bill about bees and the up shot is he is coming down tomorrow afternoon to help me open up the hive, mark my queen and add another super. Sometime before then I have to get some frames assembled. This was all done amidst a scene of pleasant chaos with kids running in and out and around, Cassie and Maisie reacquainting themselves.

The Walled Garden, the scene of the day’s music, was a hive of activity with volunteers setting up stalls, sound systems and barbeques.






Dougal did his usual checking out, including the visitors, Kenny from Arrina down for the Festival, at the Water Aid tent.


He slipped into the Garden despite express orders from Pete but then again orders and Dougal do not go together. A quick check around and he was back out with out meeting up with Pete or digging for any moles.



After having a chat with Sarah


in the volunteer tent, the most important at any Festival, it was off down the road again and called into the Campsite which is going to be where it is going to happen tonight. Again a quick check around and the bar station looks so peaceful.




With a quick turn down to Culduie to pick up some more booze and lunch.

Heading back up about two and at the Inn from about three till eight and then up to the marquee till whenever. Blinks of sun, no midgies,warm, Applecross…….
