Island Life


 

In Scotland we are blessed with a wealth of easily accessible Islands. Ideal for those of us who are not particularly interested in going abroad.

For most people an island is the perfect chance for escapism, to leave worries and trouble on the mainland.

 

For me, the Isle of Arran is my holiday destination of choice, in fact I am here right now writing this. I could not estimate the number of times I have been on holiday here, or even just day trips. Life is different here, people are different here. There is always a “hello” or a “good morning” from the people you pass. Try that in a town or city and most people would think you crazy, or weird.

Life feels a lot more relaxed here, almost slower, nobody pushing passed in a hurry, every second person isn’t on their phone not paying attention to their surroundings.

 

The idea of living on an island has appealed to me for long time, whilst I wouldn’t say it would be a dream come true to move, it has certainly been a thought, that has become more persistent with each passing visit.

 

However, two big questions remain:

Could I actually pack up and move? Assuming employment and accommodation were sorted.

 

Should I actually move?

Often, the desires of the heart don't mesh with one's practical side. Still, I don't blame you for wanting to move to that kinder, gentler place.
