Comment posted Easdale RIB rendezvous 2012 by Brodie.

It is indeed very pleasing to have something positive to say about Easdale Island. I hope all the RIB enthusiasts have a very pleasant time; a very welcome tourist boost for an island where visiter numbers dropped last year whilst tourism in Scotland increased significantly. Good luck to Sea Fari and I hope that the event is a resounding success.

  2. From his grudging praise for this venture it would seem that Brodie is one of those who stand on the sidelines and carp rather than contribute. I have been to Easdale Island on two occasions in the past year, once to the hugely successful and mobbed World Stone Skimmimg championships and the second time for an excellent meal at the island’s great wee pub.
    I understand that through community effort the Island Museum is again open and I look forward to an early summer visit there.

  4. Garvellachs;-( Garbh Eileach) in translation from the Gaelic actually means island of hard stone or perhaps indicated that life and cultivation was hard on them! Not ‘Islands of the Sea’.

    • Makes a lot more sense. We’ll send a note to the publisher of our information source – not, like us, Gaelic speakers, it would seem. Thank you.
