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

Our Gille Brighde Visit.

Really part of the last post but so much going on and recovering from so much going on. We went in a couple of cars to the fabulous Gille Brighde in Diabaig on the shores of Loch Torridon. We ate a fantastic meal in great company in a lovely setting.


Outside the weather was blowing a gale and the rain was horizontal. The road ,certainly the last part, is the equal to any remote ones in the Highlands for single track and twisting and turning. On the way back after consuming vast amounts of lamb, chicken pate, turkey,koftas and sticky toffee puddings the journey was made shorter as I introduced Marieclau to Treacherous Orchestra and Peatbog Faeries. They went down as well as the meal. I think it is safe to say that everywhere is remote from Applecross and its surrounds not the other way round. We have everything here.

    Ah but of course- everyone thinks it all happens in the central belt but in my view it all happens far away from there – and that might be part of the reason it does happen because it’s far away.

      You are right. It is a matter of scale I suppose, news is supplied to the biggest population belts and the outlying areas just get on with it.A good New Year to you and Stewart and thanks again for the printing of the calendars, think it was 550 this year and we sold out.

    Happy New Year to all in Applecross.

    So sorry to here the sad news, We enjoyed meeting and talking to Rodger. Please pass on our condolences. We hope to visit Applecross soon, Life can be hard at times, difficult to makes sense of! We had a weekend in Paris recently, we both paid our respects at the Bataclan, the floral display and the many messages bring home how much life with peace means to us all! Keep up the good work Alli, see you soon.

      And to you, I suppose the oft used phrase Life Goes On is so appropriate if too often used.And a good New Year to you both, take care.
