52 – Judy Gibson

I’m absolutely delighted to say that this episode is a chat with Judy Gibson of the Isle of Erraid.

Erraid is a tidal island off of the Ross of Mull, with a remarkable and long history. This is our first interview with someone from Erraid.

Judy and I chatted at the start of lockdown over the internet on a fairly poor line, which cut out several times.

Our conversation covers a lot of ground. We talk about how her family first came to holiday on Iona and then onto Erraid, where her mother chose to settle. We talk about Judy’s life and adventures and go into detail about Erraid’s remarkable history.

Thanks for listening!
