For my new followers, this is me looking sharp, and my lovely girlfriend. This is the first time I’ve ever posted a personal photo so indulge me…
This is where I live. The Island of Eriskay in the Western Isles of Scotland. Fr Allan MacDonald wrote (in Gaelic):
“Should I even have my choice
I’d prefer of all in Europe
A dwelling place beside the wave
In the lovely Isle of Youth.
It’s bare of foliage, bare of bent-grass,
Bare of barley sowing,
But beautiful for all its bareness
Is each sod of it to me.”
The causeway from my island Eriskay to the next one Uist. It’s a perilous crossing, for the otters at least.
