Easdale – pronounced ‘Ease-d’l’ by the locals
I spent a week with my family on the tiny slate island of Easdale over Easter. I don’t have much to say about the place other than it was beautiful, the trip from Seil with the friendly ferrymen took five minutes and we transported our bags from the dock to our cottage with the number 33 wheelbarrow – no cars; Maisie was off the lead, feeling like the dog she was born to be. The deep blue sea-pools – former slate quarries surround the Island. Oh, and there were two sheep-pigs.
Seil – the island between the mainland and Easdale.
The island is covered with slate containing Iron Pyrites
