A highland fling

our wee adventure on the Black Isle

Terminado !!

It’s finished. It’s finally finished! We have finished the olive harvest at long last.

Yes, at long last – almost a month later, with many sore muscles, turned ankles, sore backs and twisted knees. It’s been a wonderful year to harvest, however, full of rewards. The olives have been plentiful and healthy, and the weather has been almost perfect.

So, two tons plus of olives later, we’re calling it a day. The last sacks of olives have gone to the press, the nets are folded, the machine has been taken apart. In a few short days, we will return from the mill with 25 litre containers of gorgeous Yunquera Gold olive oil.
