New views from the kitchen

The view from the new Skye Fudge kitchen is different and, if anything it's better, as we can see right across the loch now. At this time of year the garden is at its best. Peruvian lilies, yellow loosestrife and fragrant rosa rugosa hedging are in abundance; the garden is awash with colour.

The sunsets have been spectacular this summer, especially when there are a few clouds floating about above MacLeods Tables, spreading crimson streaks across the sky. It's at times like these, that we islanders swear there is nowhere else we'd rather be, and the dark dreich days of winter seem far away.

Celebrations

Had an opening ceremony with a delicious cake baked by Leona and some yummy fudge made by Chirsty, and eaten by the rest of us - Glenys, Sarah and myself. Everyone is here part-time, and I am incredibly lucky to be surrounded by not only the best team imaginable, but some great friends too.

We're enjoying the chance to get together more often, because there's room for more than one of us at the same time. And apart from the none too serious 'Radio Wars' (One v Two v Four v Radio Scotland), it's just great!
