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

Of Dogs and Seals

Although fairly quiet weather wise today decided not to go fishing yesterday, knowing that I would probably pay for it in the predicted north winds. Was out today and  it was the case. Hard work on the Sound but bright and sunny by the late afternoon. Still lots of langoustine about although some fleets are looking a bit shaded with a lot fewer in them. Small but plentiful. But back to yesterday where I took the dogs out for a spin on the bike after the Memorial service for Mrs Wills at Clachan. We ended up down at Culduie


and went out to see the seals.


Calum would not make a living doing any seal trips here.


You do not need a boat.


Arriving on the point there was a rush into the water


but not by all.


They seem to realise there is no danger from a couple of yapping, excited dogs.


Both are very curious about the other but a safe distance was kept between both just in case.


Noisy but fun interlude to the day, although some looked slightly nervous.



And through out it all there were still some who just lazed through it all.

    Fantastic photos and I’m especially loving the two with the big nervous eyes 🙂 I’ve never thought about this before, but are they there year round?

      Cheers Duncan. They do seem to be. They have a far easier life than they used to. They were chased off with shot guns in the past. There is one there that does look decidedly nervous.
