Small Isles

I take the liberty of excusing the good folk in the Small Isles for not blogging as vociferously as some of us do. The other day, their broadband was turned off because the company had gone into receivership. And they are busy flattening plastic with the tractor (Isle of Muck), watching bottle-nosed whales off Laig Bay (Eigg), staving off urges of cannibalism (Canna), and building piers (Knoydart). Mostly, they're just having a whale of a time down there. Read more in West Word, link to the right of this blog.

I've recently put in pictures of our ferries here in Stornoway, I'm actually very worried about the Small Isles boat - look at this

Loch Nevis elsewhere?

This is not the small isles ferry, this is the Sheerwater which belongs to Arisaig Marine and is skippered by the knowledgeable Ronnie (although never trust him if he says its going to be a fine crossing!). The Small Isles ferry is of course the Loch Nevis, sailing from Mallaig.

At the time I took those pictures, the Lochnevis was out for a refit. Its place was taken by a relief craft. When I saw the boat (Staffa Ullin), I remarked to the piermaster on Eigg that they must have washed the Lochnevis at too high a temperature

No this is not the Sheerwater it is the ferry we have as replacement for the Loch Nevis from Iona

Blimey, it looks just as bad as the Sheerwater though! How long is the Loch Nevis away for? I'm pretty sure my kids would be sick on that one too!
