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

A Fishing Boat Wedding.

Outside chopping up and barrowing wood yesterday afternoon thinking of nothing in particular, maybe of going to work at the Inn in the evening, when I noticed the Grace Anne just off Ardhu.


I nipped into the house for the camera and was paparazzi for the next ten minutes using the long lens and taking one


or two photos of the latest Applecross wedding.


Possibly a unique occasion, being married on a fishing boat off the Applecross shores,


but that is what Euan and Marianne did before heading up to carry on the celebration up at the Walled Garden. I had offered to close up the bar so everyone could go up the road from the Inn to join in and that is what happened, eventually, and a Saturday night in December saw me switching lights off at just after eleven o’clock.

    It was a lovely day and I enjoyed walking up to the hydro intake with you and the dogs. Say hi and thanks to the Skiff boys when you see them!

      Will do, very enjoyable. Sod’s law but the hydro shut down last night. Looked similar to last one so just switching a breaker back on this morning and running again. Just uploading your photos!!

      PS You were not supposed to pay for the meals last night at the Inn. Next time I see you it will be with a bottle of wine.

      For a wedding in December they got lucky and seems there is a wee one on the way.
