Easdale Medical Practice

Please note that the Surgery will be

CLOSED

from 12.00 noon on Tuesday 15th November

to

4.00pm on Wednesday 16th November

Only emergencies can be seen during this time.

In the event of an emergency, ‘phone the usual surgery number (300223) for advice.

If you will need repeat prescriptions around then, please order them in good time.

The Surgery will be closed while a new computer system is being installed

and therefore no patient records can be accessed or prescriptions issued.

Fingers and toes crossed that the new system operates smoothly and without any glitches!

And now for some good news!

Ruth & Dughall at No. 55 started doing bed and breakfast about six weeks ago and immediately got off to a flying start.

They raise a flag on the flagpole to celebrate a visitor’s country of origin, and over the weeks the flags of all nations have been fluttering in the breeze – and occasionally flapping furiously in a Force 8!

Dughall’s full Scottish breakfasts, accompanied by Ruth’s homemade bread, have already become legendary across the globe. On Stone Skimming weekend 12 guests were regaled with heaped plates of bacon, eggs, tomato, mushrooms and tattie scones, to fortify themselves for the rigours of the day ahead.

Rooms are sometimes available at short notice, but advance booking is definitely a good plan. Check out their website HERE for booking info, and for a link to their Facebook page with up-to-date snippets of news.

More sad news.

We heard today that our former ferryman Tom Plunkett has recently died.

He ferried us back and forth from 1991 to 2002, and after his retirement he and Dot moved to Dingwall where they settled in very happily, returning here every couple of years or so to renew old acquaintances.

Our thoughts are with Dot.

Ooops!!

Some pretty stormy weather during last week, but fortunately there was only one casualty.

Mr. McSkelly has now been restored to an upright position and is seated by the living room fire warming his chilled bones.
