By bus, train and two planes, I found myself back in Stornoway just after 7pm. On arrival at Inverness, at 4.20pm, the monitors showed the 6.10pm plane to Stornoway delayed by 90 minutes. Fortunately, that was reduced to 20 minutes, and we duly took off just after 6.30 - in darkness. The journey from Amsterdam was above the clouds, as the sun sank down to the horizon for sunset just after 4pm. There was shallow fog at Inverness airport, right across the runway. But even from my seat, I could make out the lights on the runway.
