Colonsay Arrival

As you may have gathered from yesterday’s post, the arrival by plane on Colonsay was in rather wet overcast conditions. Straight to our digs and as the rain eased off a wander down to the harbour was called for.

Sheep roamed freely and the bleating of the young lambs was everywhere. Even in the rain the place was charming, or maybe it was just that I was on holiday.

As for the wet stuff, it wasn’t all bad – right next to the bookshop one could find the Island’s brewery, all full of shining metal, scrubbed floors and beer.

So after a wee wander it was back to the hotel and, of course, a pint of locally brewed ale. Started to feel quite at home after just a few hours, sat in front of a roaring open fire and a pint in hand.

What would the next day bring?

  1. Such lovely pictures, John. I would agree, our vision when on holiday is immune to inclement weather! And, let’s face it, in Scotland (from what I hear) one must expect rain… Still so high on my “to-go list”!

    1. Just to be clear, this is the view from the hotel bedroom window. Back here in Cork we look onto other houses….😐 Nice houses mind, and we do have a garden – as featured in Vivid I and II. 😎 Enjoy the weekend Kaz, MM 😘

      1. My eldest sister was telling me just now about the time she was visiting one of our other sisters who lived in Scotland at the time, they were out driving one afternoon when they had to stop for a ewe and her lamb. My sister driving the car stuck her head out of the car and shouted. ‘Get out of the road you’re not fit to be a mother!’
