It’s been a while I know, far too long in fact but I’ve simply just not had the time. It has in short been pretty manic since I left you on Sunday afternoon on what was a beautiful spring afternoon. Since then I’ve been running around like the proverbial fly with the ‘blue bottom’ or sleeping 🙂 And to be honest I’d be sleeping right now where it not for the fact that it’s 5:30 am on a Wednesday and I’ve to be setting off for the Loch Striven shortly, only seven or so hours since I left her:-( but more of that later. 

The only reason that I’m actually plonking away on here at all and not shaving, dressing, raiding the fridge and generally getting my act together for a ‘week before the mast’ is that our beautiful ‘wee hoose’ is at last officially on the market . The Isle of Skye Estate Agency having done such a good job on the brochure that we’re now having second thoughts about moving out 🙂





  1. God why again do you want to move its a dream house very tastefully done up . If i could move my job up there we would be up there in a shot . good luck paul but i suspect you wont need it . it will be sold very quick with they pictures 🙂

  3. Paul,
    Why have IOSEA put a map marker 100m from your house and in the middle of the road?
    Then when you zoom in and click the marker it tells you to look just below the marker for your property!
    By my reckoning your front door is here 57.457744,-6.010297, which would make the property much easier to find but then again,
    maps are for exploring!
    Ditto with the comments above but new houses do have the advantage of excellent insulation!

  7. Looks like a nice day when the pictures were taken. If I were to win enough on the lottery or premium bonds within the next couple of days, I’d make you an offer! Good luck with the sale, I hope you don’t get too stressed!

  9. Hi Paul.
    See you’ve taken the first step to selling the house, that shows your committed to moving house by Advertising it through your local estate agent, what a spread it does all yours and wife’s hard work justice and I wish you a speedy house sale. By the way in reading your blog I have noticed you’ve got an interest in LISTER ENGINE’S’ and I just happen to finalise a short video I’ve put together from my hols in Ireland after spending a week in Taynuilt earlier in the year of 2011. I’ve attached it below hope it entertains you for a minute and a half. Walter

    • Morning Denver ??? I’m sure you said you were from Colorado Kate, anyway take comfort in the fact that if I had to live anywhere else a thousand miles from the sea then it would be in the Rocky mountains of your fair state 🙂
