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


Sunday was spent at the Inn due to the sparse numbers of people on the peninsula, staff that is. Happy to put some hours in and it breaks the week up, especially when you meet some new chaps/esses and it keeps the money-box from emptying too quickly.


Stopped on the way up the road past Milton


as the sunlight scene with waves pounding on the limestones slabs merited a couple of snaps.


It was very windy from the west for a while


and with a little snow overnight we did not expect too many people about. Not the case and by 12.30pm the tab grab had a few checks on.


Did not last but at no time did we have no one in, a large group down from the Coulin Estate and a couple over from the east. Had the local builders in for their Christmas bash and then it was home. Surprisingly it had raced round to 10pm. Always interesting to chat to completely different customers and how you carry out a variety of conversations with variant people. Chuck in a slightly offbeat subject and it can take you places where you make a strong connection. Others you immediately back off when you understand someones reply as so opposed to your own. Have n’t quite mastered, and probably never will, the art of carrying out a conversation attentively with little or no meaning. Only saying this because I really enjoyed a connection last night and we chatted about stuff that would probably be out of many people’s comfort zone.

Today was walking and cycling with the dogs and picking up Son No3 while dropping off another calendar on the way. They are going well and hopefully will have sold the last run by the New Year. Tricky to work out how many on the first year, but going well. Planning for next year already. Weather was a lot quieter


and brighter


although still a little fresh,


a lovely December day ashore. Easing down this morning as well so may nip down when dingy floats and haul a couple of hundred pots if I remember how.
