Back again. Country Tracks is off i-player now so if you missed it you will have to wait till it crops up again.
Really busy getting Misty ready for the season, painting sanding etc. any volunteers will be very welcome at Waterloo Boatyard over the next few weeks!! We are all really looking forward to the start of the season now and hopefully a bit of sun and warmth! Lots of snowdrops about which is lovely...spring can't be far away!
There was a really good Scottish Quiz night in the hall here on the 29th Jan which was well attended and great fun. Well done to the winners who I think were called the Faolin Fools but more so to the organisers who raised a total of £441 for the school funds.
The village is very quiet just now but if we hear of anything we'll let you know, or if you hear of anything or have any news you could let us know or post it here or on the Elgol Isle of Skye facebook page.
Catch you later.

Jan 2011

Hello and Happy New Year to everyone.

I can't believe that I haven't blogged since June last year. It's all down to facebook which we keep up to date but apologies to anyone who doesn't use facebook and who was promised an up to date blog!
So far the winter has been very mixed with lots of really cold weather up to the turn of the year with quite a bit of snow which was wonderful for photos.Now it's mostly wet and windy which isn't really much good for anything but means I have no excuse for not catching up on some office work..not my favourite thing.
Work has begun on the Misty Isle in preparation for the upcoming season so there is lots of sanding, scraping and painting to be done over the next few weeks. This is when we appreciate just what a big boat she is, but it's always worth it when we see her back in the water looking really smart and ready for work.
We had the BBC filming late summer and they phoned the other day to tell us that the programme, Country Tracks, is on on Sunday 30th January at 11am on tune in to that for a wee taste of summer.
For more on how Misty is getting on and lots more photos have a look at facebook. You can also post your own favourite Coruisk photos on the Misty Isle page.
Hope you all have a wonderful 2011 and we look forward to seeing everybody in the summer.
