Saturday 31 March

Wildfires continue to plague the Highlands and Islands, including Lewis. Went out, being driven around, first of all to the Lewis War Memorial, then to North Tolsta. A few miles north of Tolsta, a large wildfire has destroyed an area of moorland to the north of Garry Beach, leaving blackened hillsides.

  1. It's a shame that so much land was destroyed by the wildfires. I hope they didn't start by human carelessness.
