I am from the stunning Island of Lismore where I live with my partner Donald. I returned to the island in 2001 after spending some years living different places, Oban, Glasgow, Bude, Boscastle, London, Crete and The Nederland’s. I run a little, and cycle, I’ve done a few 10k races in the last few years, last year Glasgow and the year before I ran in the Cork harbour marathon. I left my job a few years ago and since then have been self-employed doing various jobs on the island and locally on the mainland as well as some crafts and Airbnb. Living on a small island has its challenges, it’s extremely rural, the weather isn't the best, unless rain is your thing, the ferries sometimes don't run and there isn't a Pub or restaurant...There's a cafe open daily in summer 11- 4, and sometimes there are evening meals on a Thursday or Friday night. The Pier house Hotel Restaurant and bar are directly beside the Port Appin/Lismore ferry. Airds hotel also has a restaurant. There is an amazing sense of freedom, our young grandchildren love it here. The road is single track and though the cottage is close to other houses, it’s still quiet and peaceful. The views are stunning and there is an incredible history. People are kind and generous and it’s a joy and privilege to live here. We love to be here but also like to have weekends away or days on "The (Website hidden by Airbnb) an Island with a smashing ferry service, 2 services!!! One at either end! The Cal Mac car ferry takes you directly to Oban (50 minutes). The Argyll and Bute council passenger ferry which takes you to Port Appin (7minutes) Port Appin is just off the A828 halfway between Oban and Fort William. The Island is very accessible, but it is still an island and there are storms, fog, engine trouble, tidal difficulties and of course ferry times, so sometimes you have to be flexible and relaxed in your approach as Island life can mean things don’t always go to plan and there’s no point in getting harassed, so my motto is: Go with the flow!
