A new adventure on the isle of Eigg.

WordPress tells me that it is four months since my last post and five since leaving Tiree. Too long not to have continued my adventures in the Hebrides but a lot has happened, in life if not on the page, more of which later, perhaps.

I arrived on the isle of Eigg yesterday, February 22nd. The planning and arrangements were full of surprises and one or two setbacks but I am here now and fortuitously, the sun has come out and it is exquisitely beautiful. There is one person who has risen to every e mail and question and today, to top it off, Lucy offered me the use of a very special hut, Sweenys Bothy, an off grid artists space especially built for people to come to the island, gaze at the view and contemplate their work. Only a year or two old, it is already fully booked months in advance as so many people seek the quiet majestic beauty its location has to offer. I was lucky, someone had flu in Manchester and couldn’t travel and so the space was mine for the day due, yet again, to Lucy’s generosity.
