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

Amidst the political upheaval of Jeremy Corbyn not bowing low enough at the Cenotaph and no Scottish MPs on the Human Rights Committee to decide its abolition, (Six unelected Lords on it) Applecross Hydro is quietly gathering its investment together. It was a busy day for Alison, doing a phone conference just now, with an estimated £15,000+ coming in today and conversations on the phone answering many questions with promises of more investment. This brings our total to around £330,000. So impressive but as we keep saying it is a high bar and no drugs available for clearing it. We have American investment but nothing from Russia. Check out the facebook page with its growing popularity of over 665 likes. https://www.facebook.com/ApplecrossCommunityHydro/. Less than three weeks to catch the tax relief of 30%, although nothing to stop anyone putting money in after this date to gain around 4% per annum after year one.

I am finding this a complex time of year with the excitement/stress of seeing monies coming in coupled with the weather forecast for the week and alongside the accolades won by the Inn. Sent out with some prospectuses to people who have not received any from an aborted mail shot. Delivered most and a few more tomorrow are on the way and got involved at the Inn with a dead van. We tried to start it with jump leads and then a tow but with no success and it was left in the hands of the AA. False alarm when I saw the SSE boys in but they were sorting out a lightening strike on 3/4 Shore Street. I thought they had come in for our connection marked down for the twelfth of the month. Hope the gales do not interrupt our programme. Nipped up to the site, which was quiet today, the roofers coming in later, and only Dan there. Was under instructions to do a photo shoot with Dougal.


He duly obliged without any prompting.


He may be involved in advertising the Hydro shortly. Noticed a couple of stags


that Jimmy feeds by hand and they were not bothered when I wandered up to them and took a couple of snaps.


Yesterdays weather was pretty fresh,


the Dream Machine towed away before it was blown away.


The Aussies girls are quite impressed with this breezy spell,


more to come if the forecast is to be believed.


Not that long ago I was cycling down the road catching the Sand helicopter


on its homeward commute.


There are still many of the autumn colours on the trees.
