Jonathan: Just off the phone to ‘Animal Health’ in Inverness to report suspicion of notifiable disease. Duty vet agrees that it is likely that Tolsta Faolan has Scrapie. A specialist vet is being despatched, who’ll be on the ferry this evening and will arrive in Eriskay tomorrow morning. In the meantime, the croft is in Lockdown – no animals on or off the croft until further notice. More about this when the vet has given his diagnosis. Poor Faolan! – he did look pitiful this morning! And to think just four days ago there was nothing obvious amiss.
