      Can you tell me how to find "Soupy"?
      Am just now able to read my email. Am a New Orleans hurricane Katrina
      evacuee--did not lose my house, but am relocating. This email was going through
      Tulane University which is closed. Email was unavailable too for a long time.
      I did go to the Isle of Islay and found McCourry clues for anybody who is
      interested.

        Cousins, The Isle of Ulva is beautiful and privately owned. Members of the Howard family, owners of Ulva, are extremely nice people as are the few tenants

          Cousins,
          The Isle of Ulva is beautiful and privately owned. Members of the
          Howard family, owners of Ulva, are extremely nice people as are the
          few tenants that live and work there. Jamie Howard is working to
          improve the buildings, the trails, and especially the land so that his
          prize livestock will be profitable to raise. At Clan MacQuarrie
          Gatherings we have had feasts and programs in the Church - a
          Parliament Church that should be preserved as well as its history.
          Soon the church will be upgraded, but surely they will keep the pulpit
          with the overhead sounding board. I found it a rare privilege to walk
          the trails, view the ruined villages, enjoy the scenery, and breathe
          in the wonderfully clean air. The last Chief of the Clan had a home,
          but it has been recycled into dykes and barns, but we saluted the old
          fellow by kissing stones on a high fence nearby where hawthorn bushes
          were blooming. We saw a rowan tree, planted for good luck. One may
          see a lime kiln and vat for burning kelp and go inside a few of the
          cottages that yet stand. A trip to the museum chronicles the geology
          of the island, the cave, the flora and the fauna. Likewise, the
          MacQuarries are noted as well as others that have inhabited the Isle.
          On four visits to the Isle I have truly walked in the footsteps of my
          ancestors. Mr. Howard allows people to roam the trails or sit and
          dream, the only cost is for the ferry ride over and back. Oh, yes,
          you do pay for fresh oysters pulled up from the icy water as you wait
          on the terrace to open and eat them, or the salmon, or your soup or
          coffee or fresh baked cakes and pies. The tea shop is one industry
          on Ulva. The other appears to be raising beef cattle and horses.
          I'm not sure if the dogs are for hunting red deer or not. I trust no
          one wants to demolish the buildings on Ulva or to modernize the
          landscape. Perhaps Ulva should be left for poets and artists or
          another Mendelsson to write a second Hebridian Overture. That way Mr.
          Howard may continue his husbandry of the land, and we MacQuarries may
          enjoy it as genteel guests, not like old Dr. Johnson that complained
          that the Chief's house was "mean" because the floor got a little wet
          from a little Scotch mist.

            If you use dogs to hunt deer or any other animal you will spend a bit of time in the big hoose. I think it was 2004 that it was made illegal. Everybody has the

              Everybody has the right to roam in Scotland as long as they don't cause any
              damage. As I recall there is no act of Trespass.

              Not particularly relevant to Ulva but interesting none the less.
