Have been busy working on a redesign of the site, amongst other things, which is my excuse for not having posted a diary entry for almost 2 months! This entry will look back at my remaining time on Eigg at the end of April and start of May.
Most of my time during this period was spent on repairing the wood shed at Gardener's Cottage, the volunteer accommodation. It had a tree land on it at the end of last year, and was no longer watertight.
Arrived on Eigg on Saturday 15th April, so have been here a bit over a week now. I'm volunteering for Bob and Norah, who are renovating the old hunting lodge here. They intend to create an environmental education centre that will demonstrate sustainable building techniques and host courses on related subjects. At present, the lodge is barely habitable. There is a lot of dry rot and general degradation. However, they have heating, a little electricity, and all of the plumbing works.
