Welcome to


This website is made possible only by the contribution of others.

On this page I have credited in no particular order, some of the people who have helped make blaven.com the popular website that it is today.

  • Caoimhín Ó Donnaile and Dòmhnall Dòmhnallach of Sabhal Mòr Ostaig for their ongoing help and assistance with the webcams.
  • Elgol and Torrin Historical Society for allowing me to publish a selection of photographs from their extensive collection here.
  • jQuery Foundation for the invaluable jQuery JavaScript Library.
  • Sabhal Mòr Ostaig for hosting the two webcams overlooking the Sound of Sleat.
  • Tim Macpherson of Glenelg Holiday Cottages for the webcam feeds.
  • Tomas Bagdanavičius for his elegant CSS Drop-Down Menu Framework that is used on virtually every page.
  • Torstein Hønsi for his superb Highslide JS thumbnail viewer used to display images on this site.
  • Ultravox for their 1984 song 'Lament.' It was the filming of the accompanying (cheesy) video promo around Elgol, Kilmarie, Cill Chriosd and Broadford that first drew me to Torrin and my first close encounter with Blaven.

  • And finally, an extra special thank-you to Gordon Bushell and Elizabeth Bushnell for 14 very special years at Clover Hill, Torrin.
