One of our neighbours has acquired a Forest Cat - same as Rollo.   Lizzie arrived like a tiny missile from a rocket - all hiss and spit and fully in charge of two dogs and two humans in about five seconds.  I have never seen anything like it.  I christened her "Lizzie...

A miracle happened.... the Council refused permission for the fish farm expansion opposite the village (without me even having to chain myself to anything).

Two things were interesting about that experience.  The first was unexpectedly wanting to cry when it became obvi...

First off, I am a terrible blogger.   Every fifth blog on this site is an apology for not posting (as if anyone is reading the posts).   But if you are, sorry again.   I will try and catch up...  LIFE IS BUSY HERE!!!!!   Since when does anyone get time to burble on abo...

 Just in case you wanted an update to our skiff team progress, we just did our first regatta of 2019.   I was honestly a bit worried because we only managed to launch the skiff about 6 weeks before, so we were not exactly in race condition.   Still, we made a good job...

In my old desk job days, it happened that if I got arrested, I would have lost that job.   It was a requirement that I was always a fine upstanding member of the community, as I am sure you all are as well.   I wouldn't ever have actually done anything morally bad anyw...

 This is what happens when an artist gets stuck in a rut.  The artist gets stagnant and frustrated and then something unexpected "breaks out" from WHO KNOWS WHERE!   The series of little figures that led up to this looked equally tortured.   I suppose I was trying to e...

I have decided that every community should be allocated a score according to the "Tupperware Scale".    The idea is simple:  If you give out any of your tupperware containers to neighbours, how many come back?   Would they all come back?  Would they all come back washe...

Summer 2018.... What a cracker!   We didn't go anywhere this year.  Instead we took out visitors on the yacht and shared some of the delights of sailing in the Highlands, like the white tailed sea eagle chicks and dolphins.   It was lovely to see this things afresh thr...

Did I mention the rowing?    The short(ish) version goes like this...  In 2009, the Scottish Coastal rowing project was set up, to connect communities like us back to the water (no one uses boats anymore except for fisherman and the odd sailor like us).   The project c...
