Seriously though, that is a bummer.


Thanks. If this was England, it could indeed be anti-EU measures, but Scotland is, broadly speaking, pro-EU ....

No. The council website still claims there are no ferry disruptions.

That's probably because they're all out there moving rocks and haven't had a chance to update.
All that rock slid/washed down off the land, not kicked up by waves, right?

I was thinking the other way 'round. Having said that, I have no clue.

Seems like an enterprising kid with a rowboat could make some money offering passenger service.

Rocks shoved across (left to right) by tide/waves.
Enterprising local people with boats were immediately on it, of course.
Local busybody was right behind them and called the MCA (Maritime and Coastguard Agency) who said "Oi! You can't do that! Regulations forbid it!!!".
Local Council is sending a digger over tomorrow (an annual occurrence, why don't they build a proper breakwater?) and were negotiating with MCA to calm down.
But it's still been too windy to cross, most of the time.
Hope to be home tomorrow.

I'll bet if that was a road covered up they'd have it cleared damn quick.
Well it is a road, it's the road to the island, it's your only road.
Find out who the official is and move into his living room with all your gear... including instruments. Might as well practice while you wait.

A digger has been diligently digging out the channel and the wee ferry can now get in and out if the tide is relatively high.
We are home.
