The Isle of Auskerry is the home of an old friend of mine from the Jethro Tull touring days.

His name is Simon Brogan and he was a assistant Tour Manager back in the mid 1970’s. 

After a short stint with the group I heard that he had moved to the Orkneys and was raising sheep...

Simon and his partner Theresa Probert seem to thrive on this island, although I’m sure it’s a lot of work!
