It's been an odd day here, 18 degrees C (64F) and feeling very warm. The sun even came out at one point. Thank you Humberto (this old tropical storm has been pumping mild air north from the tropics). Anyway, I'm hearing that the Clipper Ranger can carry 81 lorries, rather more than the old Muirneag (I think her tally was 16).
Today also saw the last visit of a cruiseliner to Stornoway for this year. It was the Fram, a regular late- or early-season visitor. The Stornoway Gazette promptly got the name wrong, thinking the route designation (Hurtigruten) was the vessel's name. They could have known better.
