Friday evening

The morning's and afternoon's rains have moved away, and we're now enjoying some pleasant evening sunshine. The ferry is just coming into port, half an hour late, on the second of its three Friday calls - only in July and August by the way.

I posted on Facebook and Twitter the news that the Food Standards Agency has now lifted restrictions on the last Scottish sheepfarm following the Chernobyl disaster of April 1986. After 24 years, it's unbelievable. No details on the location of the farm are given in the article.

And they want to build windfarms in the Minch, the stretch of water between Lewis and mainland Scotland. Yep, it's an eyesore. People are protesting - but some of those are in favour of a landbased windfarm of similar turbine size.

I was watching the Coastguard helicopter taking off this morning and head inland. They were tasked to search for a walker, who had gone missing near Loch Langabhat yesterday. The 46-year old man was located cold and wet, but otherwise unhurt, between Loch Morsgail and Loch Reasort, a few miles west of Loch Langabhat.
