Coigach owns it, and takes the biscuit. And the trophy.
Ok. What is it about this – let’s face it – tiny community of around 300 souls who live scattered around the Coigach peninsula..?
A ‘remote’ place with the memorable postal address of Achiltibuie, which sees a modest community project to build a St Ayles rowing skiff start in early 2010 … and 3 years later sees the 30-or-so membership ( 10% of the whole local population, mind) take the trophy at the 1st ever St Ayles Skiff World Championships.
So what’s the recipe fo’ these here biscuits? (You can tell I visited Texas recently. Sorry.)
Is it just heaped tablespoonsful of this? (These guys ain’t ridin’ no fail-train!)With a very, very generous pinch of this…?….and a very cheeky young level tea-spoonful of this..?…aye, why not have a wee blether on yer mobile, Under 17s Crew Captain, Seumas…it’s just HRH Princess Anne waiting to talk to you…
It’s also the leavening of the Over-60-year old youngsters (with cox, centre) …… plus the raw ingredients of the Under 17 years young oldsters!And it all goes into the beautiful mixing bowl of our coastal surroundings – way up in the wonderful wilds of the N.West Highlands where we all live and work and play (and row) and ceilidh together… …and them ol’ biscuits?
