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

Looking out the window, noticing some bunting being put up on the school fence, I wandered out with the camera to see what was on and discovered a tour of the Garden was on offer and as Daniel, Millie were coming over with Jess I tagged along and was well impressed with the children’s efforts.

There are lots of trees and bushes planted, both for cover and fruit bearing like cherry and apple. A bug/rodent/hedgehog home has been created with old branches over some half buried pipes beside a little pond where tadpoles will grow. Lots of raised beds built for growing vegetables and little individually planted ones as well.

I’ve often heard some older folk say”But you cannot eat trees”, keeping my silence but thinking it would be a richer, varied and more fertile landscape if the place was not continually being denuded by sheep and red deer. The school is in the process of regenerating a little patch of land and it is going to be fascinating watching the area mature over the years. Can’t help thinking getting bees now has been perfect timing with the South coast deer fence going up and with the kids planting out their eco garden.

They won a Green Flag for eco schools and from what I saw today well deserved. You will be able to keep up with progress on their blog.applecrossprimary.edublogs.org/‎ Bit jealous of some of their potatoes and lettuce compared to what I have in my own garden.

So after a wee snooze following some book work it was Inn bound. Very pleasant and relatively easy service. Full room but can cope with that now and Judith had a very tasty meal of hake with her brother and family in the dinning room. All pictures can be seen on Facebook.
