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

Have been posted missing the last fortnight. Not that I have had nothing to do. Bookwork still missing deadlines but underway. Only fished at the start of last week and again yesterday. A beautiful day


but no langoustine. Well not quite, but 10 kilos from 375 creels, “no langoustine” is an apt description. The lethargy is simply me going into hibernation, commonly known nowadays as SAD. And today I have finally given in, partly as I have just received my Christmas present of this light that everyone talks about. It will be on tomorrow and expecting book work to be finished by end of week. Yesterday as I said was a stunning day at sea,


not a lot of marine life going on but the wall to wall sun ending with the red sky mainly to the south


but caught the north end of it behind Ardhu.


The temperature did n’t half plummet when the sun dipped below the Cuillin


and by the time I was at the Inn I was nearly putting my hands in the fire. The news of the “splitters” was well received by the visitors from Blackford so all was well.

    Hi Ali. So glad to read your post today. I have been so worried about you. You actually properly keep me going in the awful reality that is working in the NHS and I look for your posts whenever I have a spare second. I have also introduced work colleagues and friends to Applecross life many of whom are also hooked. Hope to see you in December. Best regards, Debbie Martin.

Tried to be natural but going for the boost to gets the stuff done that needs doing. Thanks for your comments Much appreciated. Fireman night at the Inn so late posting.
