A Walk Through the Village

We walked through the village this morning in conditions which varied from snow through to hail and then sunshine, but were very relieved to find that Hughie's pigs were tucked up warmly in a particularly heavy snow shower.

Vehicles from the KN Group were parked by the Sanna turn, we think working on the broadband cables. The company - here - is working with BT on the roll-out of next generation broadband which, we hope, means that we might get our superfast broadband by the new target date, March, the project having slipped from its original date of September of last year.

We walked past the houses in Pier Road with bright sunshine picking out the colours in the landscape, on our way to.....

....the CalMac pier from where there was a fine view of Mingary Castle and Beinn na h-Urchrach behind it.

This picture, courtesy Dave Brown, comes from the other side of the peninsula, looking north from Portuairk towards the snow-covered hills of Rum, with low-lying Muck in the middle distance, Eigg to the right and, along the horizon beyond Eigg, the Cuillins on Skye.

Many thanks to Dave for the photo.
