Took a trip over to Gavin Maxwell’s old haunt a few days ago in the boat.
If I hadn’t taken the boat it would have been a heck of a long swim.

The bay was completely devoid of yachts and there wasn’t a tourist to be seen ashore - very unusual at this time of year.

I took a turn round the bay and dropped a darrow over the side by the beacon but, sadly, to no avail.

The flat calm sea made for a fine crossing in both directions and on my return leg I spotted one solitary porpoise.

I hope he (or she) had more luck finding fish than I did.


I was speaking to a nurse recently from Caithness, of all places.

She was telling me that the last 4 digits of the local hospital phone number is 5050.

According to residents in that area it’s very apt as your chances of survival in that establishment are 50/50 !
