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

Bliadhna Mhath Ur

After nipping up to the Inn last night to watch an impressive terrine


being put together with the freshest of ingredients,


a sleep, a toilet paint and a last wood gather of the year


it only leaves me to wish every one who has read the blog a very very prosperous and peaceful New Year. I can only say that I so appreciate your interest and comments and hope it becomes slightly less stressful this year here and for every one as we do live a good life. Dougal, of course, would like to add his.


May you always be blessed

With walls for the wind,

A roof for the rain,

A warm cup of tea by the fire,

Laughter to cheer you,

Those you love near you,

And all that your heart may desire

    We feel very guilty that although holidayed at Lonbain twice and Kenmore once in the last 3 years and coming again to the latter in Sep 2014 for our joint 60th birthdays, we only just found this blog a few weeks ago. Sorry!!

    Greetings to you and yours and thanks for the contact with Heaven for us in exile

    A very happy, peaceful and prosperous new year to you and Dougal — your blog brings the flavour and images of the beautiful west coast into my London study, where they are always welcome.

      With a lot of the family here Dougal has been out and about a lot and is lying conked out on the floor….so good start to the year for him. Thanks for the comments and hope you have a wonderful year in 2014. Had a sober start so either fishing or Inn tomorrow and fresh for work.

    Thanks for all your really interesting posts from one of the most beautiful parts of our fine country. I hope to visit the area sometime this year and must try to get a night or 2 at the Inn and get a taste of that famous sea food.

    Kind regards and all the best for 2014.

      Cheers Brian, I suppose you know getting a night or two at the Inn needs planning ahead. Thanks for your comments and have a good new year.
