This morning we’re on Tanera Mor for a walk ashore. “Where?” I hear you ask.
This is what the guide says :
“Tanera Mòr is an uninhabited (previously inhabited) island in Loch Broom in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland. It is the largest of the Summer Isles and the only inhabited island in that group. Tanera Mòr has issued its own postage stamps and was the location of Frank Fraser Darling’s book ‘Island Years’. In 2014 it was reported that the island’s permanent residents had left and that it is for sale for £1.95 million.
Tanera Mòr is home to a salmon fish farm, several holiday cottages, a small sailing school, a café and a post office, which has operated its own local post and printed its own stamps since 1970. The island has no roads and the only recognisable path goes around An Acarsaid (“The Anchorage”), the sheltered bay on the east side of the island.“
My sort of place…
