Today started very wet, but after that shower at 11 o'clock, things dried up. It did not get properly sunny, but at least it was dry and not very windy. I jumped on the postbus at midday, not having read the timetable, so I had to organise a lift for the return trip. You now have to ring up the night before to get a bus out of Timsgarry at 5pm. Didn't use to be like that, so I was caught on the hop.
I spent the afternoon in the Uig Community Centre, listening to a talk by two academics from Edinburgh who insist that the famous Lewis Chessmen were not found at Ardroil, but 6 miles up the road in Mealista. Local people vigorously contested the reasoning behind the claim. I also met up with a few people I had not met before. I was offered a lift back to town, which I gratefully accepted. Had a good yarn with the driver and another passenger on the way back.
