The good news is that the Ilur... floats. albeit somewhat prematurely, and was not damaged in the slightest. Nor was the Honda VFR 750 or the little Yanmar waiting to be refurbished, both or which were well high enough and dry enough to escape. But it will be some time before normal service is resumed.
The farm itself has suffered severe damage to roads and cottages.
A number of lambs were swept away and a pet cat, but despite the ferocity of the surge, everyone managed to escape before the deluge struck. And it struck with frightening force and speed. All the turkeys were lost and the silage. So, perhaps, we were fortunate. And fortunate too that Ullapool rallied around to help in a way that makes you proud to be a part of the community.
