Extract Boat Journal: Thursday 29 June 1995
07-15hrs on a hilltop above Cullipool.
Mars, a can of coke and hobnobs make an excellent breakfast. Cassie for company, the birds as music, cattle lowing, or rather bellowing in the distance, a Hebridean breeze….sea and islands all around. Sun and the slightest of hazes…. This is the lure of the Hebrides.
And I heard God whisper….as I whispered my dreams of living in such a place. And here I am nine years on – living and working in these islands. (Well, I will be back at work soon!)
