Our blog - Re-born!

Our 'new life' on our wonderful Isle of Skye is now well established. We absolutely love living here, and have no regrets at all about giving up our former lives to re-invent ourselves on Skye.

This blog was originally created to enable us to keep in touch with the many friends we 'left behind' when we moved here from SE England. As it happens, we manage to keep in touch with everyone pretty well, and Sue takes regular 6-weekly trips down to Kent to see her Mum, sister and friends. I aim to visit Devon, to see my sister and family, at least twice a year - and of course, ALL our friends and family are most welcome to come and visit us here!

So now we have decided to link to this blog from the SkyeHolidays websites in the hope that some of our past or future visitors might like to learn a little more about our life on the Isle of Skye.

We also welcome comments on our posts, or even your own stories if you would like to post them here. We look forward to hearing from you.

Our love and best wishes to you all

Richard, Sue, and Basil-the-dog

Home sweet home

I went out for a walk today.

I like to walk in the wild, road-less hills that we look at from our front windows at the Barn.

Today, I stood on the summit of Beinn na Moine and took this picture. Home sweet home is the tiny white building exactly in the centre.

Another new website!

Our all-new Bed and Breakfast website is now live online at

Because Sue now works every weekday morning, we are not able to offer a 'traditional' bed and breakfast, so we are trying to market our apartment 'with a difference' - see what you think!
