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

The Year has not properly kicked in, partly to do with the weather and mostly to do with lack of enthusiasm. Also the oiler on the power saw is blocked so that has slowed up the wood supply. Been on the Net and decided it will be going to Inverness rather than me taking it apart. Get the Pier books up to date and all my stuff as well is not the most enthralling prospect. The batteries are fully charged so there may be a couple of days fishing coming up. Bit of pressure to get out tomorrow for some leaving visitors. The end of the day showed a fine sunset


behind the Red Cuillin, more pre sunset. The bank of cloud making for a slightly unusual light.


This apart there is little doing other than taking Dougal and Eildh down to the Bay where they head off into the water bothering the seabirds for a few minutes. They just fly up and then land as soon as they are past. Dougal just makes me laugh with his enthusiasm,


comes running at speed when called



looking slightly demented


and is ready for the next escapade. Good company as is the more genteel Eildh.

Nice shift in the Inn last night. Nice in the respect of it was just like the old days, one person working the bar under the watchful eye of the Boss. She only had to pour one pint all night so it was not stressful for her and time passed really quickly for me. Still there were around 20 meals to serve and people to look after and this topped off with Andy’s fine chicken fried rice. The longer days are not far off.
