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

And Now Conor.

And now Conor races through,


although the moorings are generally pretty well protected with still a bit of westerly blowing.


Has not swung round to the north-west during the fiercest of the winds.


The dinghy is at the pier, the mooring work was done six weeks ago and the stern gland tightened. Only the batteries are needing a charge but no one is going anywhere this week so that will not be till the wind dies away a little before I take them off for a charge.


Just watch and wait with one or two customers to serve at the Inn. met some “Pit Yackers” to add to my collection of North east England localities like the Sand Dancers of South Shields. Was up briefly at the Inn on Christmas morning but everything under control and did not stay around. The Belgian with two punctures was being sorted by a tow truck back to Torridon Hotel, the prosecco out and the wind blowing so just a few snaps of Conor before doing very little for the rest of the day. Lost the internet last night but Sean battled up Tor Mor to fix a part taken out by Conor.


Unsung heroes are the guys who keep local services that everyone takes for granted going. Up to the Inn now for the Boxing Day shift.
