On Graemsay "home delivery" has a whole new meaning. Any furniture, building supplies, fuel, animal feed etc has to be craned on and off our passenger ferry. It can make it a nerve wracking experience seeing a new washing machine swinging from the cable over a trailer!
Above is a photo of some fuel being delivered, which is put onto the back of a trailer and taken to the farm or house.
Anything that is winched off the ferry is carefully guided (we hope!) to the trailer by the skipper on the boat.
And with assistance from a crew member....
Various household appliances have arrived this way. I always hope for a calm, windless day with no rain!! But it is all part of island living!
