Fifty shades of grey?

February 28, 2019

It’s certainly the perfect description of Skye’s appearance today. Not a grey, miserable kind of day. A calm, restful, utterly peaceful kind of day.


The light was soft and not a whisper of wind. Birdsong was clear and far reaching. Grey waves under a grey sky, rolling softly on to the shore.


We had no power in the glen today because of maintenance work, so decided to have a day out to Talisker bay. We had the place to ourselves. The kind of gentle day which is good for the soul.

A beautiful Easter day

The View

These past few days have been getting better and better weather-wise, today reaching perfection I think. BB approves of this change and has been enjoying the great outdoors with her family. She doesn’t venture far but seems very content.


All of our guests had an early start this morning so we had the opportunity to take this season’s first ‘3 Hour Holiday’. I swapped apron for motorcycle helmet and off we went, Talisker Bay being our destination. We had our picnic on a large flat rock and just enjoyed the scenery…

We were even treated to the sight of a pod of dolphins in the bay but they were a bit too far away to get a decent photo so you’ll just have to take my word for it! It was a joy to see the newly unfurled leaves on the trees…

…and adding even more colour to the vibrant spring day was this unusual Skye resident.
