Shieldaig Notes

What a glorious start to the summer!  No doubt there will be some consequences of experiencing such low rainfall but how lovely to have been warm and dry for the last 3 weeks.  The good weather seems to have kick-started the touring season and we've seen a big increase in the number of NC500'ers passing through the village.  I'ts become something of a car-spotter's paradise with cars ranging from a fleet of modest Fiats to a rather less modest fleet of Ferrari's that were colourful diversion for the afternoon they were in town.  No news on our sea eagles yet but lambing season seems to have been a success, despite a chilly first week the lambs have enjoyed a good few weeks of growing conditions and are now beginning to range a bit further afield and get out & about to make the most of the spring growth.  If you keep your eyes open as you walk along the point you'll see lots of violets, primroses, lousewort, sorrel, bluebells and lots of new-growth bracken.  The birds are tweeting, the cuckoos calling and it's lovely to see the swallows back.  Fingers crossed this is an early sign of good things to come....
