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

The Next Danny.

Quiet evening at the Inn, relatively speaking, a little break from the chaotic politics of the last few weeks. Interesting to note the pleasant if puzzled response to the Brexit Referendum. The four Spanish who live in Inverness, the two Germans, the Polish girl, the two Dutch and even the two Americans all were interested  in talking about inclusiveness about being made welcome and it is incumbent on us all that our visitors leave Applecross, the Highlands and Scotland, taking that welcome away with them. I firmly believe if you convey that to people they take it away with them and pass it on when they connect with other people on their travels. The underlying principle of how the Inn works. It is a community within a community.

We still had the girls over from Kyleakin on the rib celebrating an imminent wedding and the kitchen was kept cooking until after nine. Busy is relative here. The wee star of the evening was the visit from Sheildaig of Bailey Dacker who appears to be well on the road to being the next Danny MacAskill. A really nice, quiet boy who does seem affected by all the attention on him when he gets on his bike and jumps on and off rocks



and tables.




The bike seems an extension of him and was so like the more advanced Danny on the Ridge. He presently leads the Scottish and British Trial Bike Championships for his age group and was fourth in his last competition in Sardinia. Saw him later dancing on the tables again and asked him to go across the two (he had already done  this earlier but the camera was away).  So he obliged.




He has a Facebook page worth a look at and it is going to be interesting following his progress over the years. https://www.facebook.com/search/str/Bailey+Dacker/keywords_top

    Good to see people encouraging a young lad with talent and not snarling at him to ‘get off the tables’ or similar.
    Like the blog by the way…

      Cheers, he is already a wee local star and he is handling it very well. He was asked to do his bike acrobatics and maybe if he continues we can look back on the evening at Applecross.
