Roadsign for Inaclete Road in Stornoway, Rathad Einicleit in Gaelic

Newton Street was built in 1833 and was always known by its English name. The area is known as Einicleit; the Coastguard Station (in so many of my weather pictures) stands at Einicleit Point. The word Sraid means street, the word Rathad means road.


This bonfire threw a pall of smoke over areas of the town

  2. Well captured Guido.
    The only time I appreciate bonfire smoke is in the winter time. The cold night air makes it easier to discern the woodsmoke. It always evokes strong memories of the 1950's before the clean air act.
