Visitors to Eigg

Every time visitors come to our school they have to sign the visitors’ book. They have to write about if they liked it and if they would come again and at the end their name and when they came. All the visitors that come to our school usually are coming to help.

A group of visitors came to the Lodge. They got nice warm beds, hot food, company and didn’t have to make their own meals. They went camping and some people learned how to make food and to cook it when they were there. There are also a lot of birds that come to Eigg, like robins, goldfinches, golden eagles, greenfinches, wood cocks, pheasants, swallows, cuckoos, blue tits, coal tits, great tits and tons and tons more. All the visitors that arrive have to walk along a road till they get to the pier. At the pier there’s benches outside, the shop, the craft shop, the waiting room, the tearoom and the toilets. The tearoom is where there’s tons of tables and a place where you can buy stuff but you’re not allowed to bring your own food in; there’s also a pool table. The craft shop is like the shop exept it sells crafts. And the shop is the shop. There’s also some benches around the back where you can see the sea.

When you get to the pier there is three ways you can go. One to another harbour. Two an uphill road where, if you keep on going you’ll get to two houses and then further on there’s the community hall. And a little bit further you’ll find the Lodge And then you can keep on going along a track until you join on with the third road. Three – another road where you eventually pass Shore Cottage and then you get to another track that leads to some beaches. Or you can keep on going up a hill and then keep going and you’ll join up with the second road. And then there’s a lot more roads and ways and there’s more beaches further on.
