Massive drones and sunny rays… really grateful to the weather that each time someone has wanted to come for filming this year, the sun has turned up and the tower has twinkled gloriously! It may just appear that here on the West coast all we do is bask in sunshine eating watermelon, tomatoes and steak with Blackthorn while the tower does all the hard work in the background… it may be true, but there are apparently around 100 different Scottish words for rain, so maybe not!! yesterday
The tang of Blackthorn is a wonderful foil to the sweet, caramelised flavours of grilled or BBQ'd fruit. The taste magnifies and the flavours shine with the intensity of a Mediterranean summer and yet they also linger and are incredibly moreish - our sure-fire way to ensure we eat enough fruit! 2 days ago
We value our location at Blackthorn and sense of place is important to us. There is an intangible 'rightness' in working on the thorn tower, where every time we glance up, the sea is there. On wild days, not only do we hear it from the Tower-top, but feel the spray it hurls at us. Salter Malky watches the sea and the weather with patience and respect as the ebb and flow of his day is dictated by them. There are so many marine myths, but Vikings were once the kings of this coast and we stumbled across this old Norse tale which appeals to our sense of how the tides might have come to be: In the Prose Edda, the god Thor was challenged to a drinking contest by the giant Utgarda-Loki. Thor drinks from his horn with gusto, but despite his best efforts cannot drain the horn. He had been tricked; the giant has connected the horn to the oceans, so Thor was in fact trying to “drink the seas dry”. The giant mocked Thor for his weakness. But from then on, so the legend goes, the seas rose and fell each day in an echo of the valiant efforts of Thor to complete an impossible task. 5 days ago
