Working For Laurelle in New York & Running A Store On Arran. What’s The Difference?
Many of us think of leaving the rat race and setting up shop in a rural idyll but few actually realise this dream and face up to the reality. Not so when it comes to Claire Reeves. Claire was living and working at Laurelle in New York after emigrating to America in 1998 from London, England in her twenties. Now, she lives on Arran and runs the Bay Kitchen & Stores business with her husband Stuart who although born in Glasgow, was a frequent visitor to Arran in his youth. This is the story of Claire’s journey in her own words as she talks about London, New York, big business and the problems of getting locally produced goat milk and potatoes on Arran!

It’s fair to say that Caledonian MacBrayne, or Calmac as it’s commonly referred to is a huge part of island life. The ferries that dock in Arran from the mainland of Scotland not only bring visitors which has a huge positive economic impact, but also crucial supplies that most people just take for granted. In this episode, I talk with Jay Shibel who originates from far of Iran but has nothing but pride in the job he does helping keep Arran and many other Scottish island connected to the Scottish mainland. His story and thoughts are a wonderful addition to this podcast as we learn about Jay’s life, Calmac and shipping all on-board the Arran ferry.

Having known Heather for a long time, interviewing her was just really having a chat with an old friend. Heather is well known on the island for her beautiful artwork which you can view below. As well as keeping busy with her incredible artistic creations, Heather also teaches and performs the Clarsach (a Scottish harp). I love the sound of this so much I asked Heather if I could use a small part of her playing on all my podcasts. I was delighted she said yes. Heather and her husband Les are very talented and industrious people and this will come across in the podcast you are about to hear. As well as Heather’s beautiful Clarsach playing, I’ll be asking her about the various ways she creates art, her gigs and the wonderful candles that Les creates. So, I hope you enjoy listening to my interview with Heather Macleod.
