Putting down roots at Lageorna, Eigg.
BandB at Lageorna in the township of Cleadale on the west side of the island.
Sue told us that she was an incomer to Eigg, she had only been there for 35 years or so but Alastair her husband had been born at Lageorna.
Alastair's great grandparents had owned the croft and it had been in the family ever since.
The large sycamore tree that now stands at the croft gate had been planted by his great grandmother.
...just for a moment, the Cuillin of Rum put in their first appearance of the day. Far below the summits a light betrayed the presence of a fishing boat working the Sound of Rum.
Ian and I so enjoyed Lageorna that we intend to return with our wives.
