An Island Cottage

Today, the weather was glorious here in the Fens, which means one thing, gardening.  We have an acre of garden, which is a lot for a garden in the UK…..and that means lots of work at this time of year.   I would rather be out exploring, but I have more than enough photos to keep me going.  We are off to Scotland in a months time for our May holiday, so I think I had better try and finish posting last years holiday on the west coast of Scotland, plus our holiday on the Scottish Islands of Islay and Jura.  So to start the ball rolling…….. an abandoned cottage on the Isle of Islay, from our May 2016 holiday.

    1. Funnily enough, in the early 1900’s there were hundreds of people living on the island, far more than now, but it still has a thriving population, mainly because of the eight breweries that are on the island. This cottage looks more desolate than it really is, there aren’t that many empty cottages now on the island, far less than other ones, which is good 🙂

  1. An acre!? That would be work, indeed. But the rewards are great. 🙂 Good to get things started before you begin your trek. Don’t know how you find time to blog. 🙂

    1. Ha ha, I do wonder sometimes myself. We only watch TV while we are at the dinner table, then its turned off, until the next evening and its normally catch up, a series we are watching or something. Then a hour on tidying etc……and then me time, which is about 8 o’clock…..which is really blog time. But now its lighter in the evenings, a bit of gardening gets done each night……. a lot of it, is lawn, and Steve has a sit on mower, which is a blessing, otherwise we would get lost in the tall grass. But it is nice to have and one day, hopefully, I will be able to spend more time in it…..grubbing, as Steve say’s when I am covered in earth 🙂
