Johnny had the good fortune to visit the Isle of Muck and the MacEwen family last Sunday, thanks to a lift in his friend Alistair (Tich) MacLachlan’s boat from Ardnamurchan.
The MacEwen’s have owned the island since 1896. It is a very fertile island of some 1500 acres and farmed exceedingly well by the family. Lawrence has had a lifetime working with the elements rather than against them. His son, Colin, is following the family tradition and kindly showed Johnny over the sheep and cattle enterprises.
Harbro have a long standing relationship with the MacEwen family and supply the Castle mixtures when reseeding take place.
“I would heartily recommend Polly Pullar’s book ‘A drop in the ocean’ which tells the tale of Lawrence MacEwen’s life on the Isle of Muck” Johnny
