Hi Ruairidh,

As Silkie says, welcome aboard.
Sounds like a really good trip you've just had.
Are you based in Badachro?
Weve just moved into a wee hoose in Lecknasaide, looking over Shieldaig bay. Will be bringing Orla up and putting her on a mooring next year.

Had a great Saturday afternoon session recently with Evanton's Blackrock Ceilidh at the Inn in Carbost. Good band.

:D there's five of them and all brilliant musicians, Stuart Eaglesham is a good pal of mine, from Wolfstone fame.....
Playing in that venue I'd guess it would be Steve Eaglesham was pagen poets, many years ago...

The others are Scott, Struan (X Wolfstone, brilliant piano player, I've done a couple of gigs with him many years a good) and Saunders the youngest.

It's a small world..
