Sunday 10 March

Another very cold day, with a strong easterly wind which blew in a number of snow showers in the morning. These subsided into the afternoon, leaving us with plenty of sunshine but also plenty of cold. I am currently arranging a visit to North Uist next weekend, where I have been invited to play at Taigh Chearsabhaigh, the arts centre in Lochmaddy, who do a "soup and jam" session. When you play your instrument, you get a bowl of soup free. So, I'll be toting a keyboard down to North Uist, and am also arranging to meet one of my on-line acquaintances there. Should make for an interesting experience.

Our ferry remains out of commission, and the Clansman is now covering the run to Ullapool. This does mean that the Clansman's normal patch has had to be covered by the smaller Lord of the Isles, and all sorts of knock-on problems up and down the west coast ferry network. The embarassing thing is that the Isle of Lewis had only returned from a £700k ($1.5m) refit two weeks ago...

  1. The soup and jam session sounds like loads of fun. Something fun to look forward to indeed!
