Wednesday 31 July

Thought to head out of town for the afternoon, particularly as the sun was shining brightly and it got quite warm. Well, it started to rain at Achmore, it was sluicing down at Loch Ganvich and only at Callanish village did it more or less dry up. Got into the visitor centre at 3pm, when it was relatively quiet. Two coaches pulled up, disgorging some of their passengers into the restaurant, so I headed up to the Stones. It was drizzly and cool up there, but as impressive as ever. Returned to Stornoway the long way round, via Carloway and Barvas - and the sun promptly returned in town. Where not a drop of rain had fallen in the meantime. Had a look round the European market before heading for a bite to eat in one of the local restaurants.
