Sunday 24 May

We had a bright spell this afternoon, but it is once more pouring with rain and blowing hard. Last year at this time, when I was not in Lewis, it was wall-to-wall sunshine for 6 weeks. Not this year; back to normal.

An elderly walker is missing around Glen Finnan, 15 miles west of Fort William. He is on the Cape Wrath trail, a long-distance walking trail to Cape Wrath, the farthest point northwest in the British mainland. After the man failed to contact a friend last night, the emergency services are currently searching this remote corner of Lochaber.
