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

Over £100,000 Today!!

It has turned into a quite extra ordinary day. Before Dai, the postie, turned up we knew today was okay as we had confirmation of £23,000, so the pressure was off. Opening the envelopes was an experience….to be brief we have received over £100,000 investment. This may actually mean that could be in a position of closing the share issue early as we reach the £770,000. We are approaching £640,000 total with around £130,000 to go!! I am stunned by the belief so many people have in the community. We are now in the position of letting any local people who are thinking of investing to do so now and not leave it any longer. There is a local preference for investing stated in the brochure, so do not be disappointed.


The rest of the day was mundane, took a fuel delivery


and rowed out for some fine langoustine.


Borrowed another outboard but could not get the cord to pull so it was a long and healthy row out to the Varuna. The need to get to Edinburgh has diminished somewhat but may go anyway as putting and keeping Applecross on the map in certain circles is important for our future. And it rained. Next month it can rain all it likes.

    As ever Applecross will succeed. The only problem for us now is will we wish for sun or rain when we visit?! Seriously you have all done an amazing job and I am sure you will reach your total. Well done to Apple Juice.

    Well done Ali, Alison and your team for a marvellous effort. You have worked so hard to bring this hydro scheme to Applecross and the community should be proud of you. It’s heartening to see such dedication to community issues. Fantastic!
