Monday 1 April

Went for an 80-mile drive round the island, through Barvas, Carloway, Callanish, Linshader and Great Bernera. Great Bernera was in mourning following the drowning of a local diver at Croir, near Bosta. Called into Dalbeg, Gearrannan, Callanish, Linshader and Tobson. Had lunch at Gearrannan Blackhouse Village and a cuppa & cake at Callanish. I had never been into Linshader, which lies off the main road into Uig (the B8011), so it was nice to have that opportunity to see the Callanish Stones from a completely different angle. Linshader is only a few hundred yards west of the Stones as the crow flies. It was a gorgeously sunny day, but not warm. Met a friend at Gearrannan that I last met a week ago - after being out of touch for 18 months.
