Thursday 11 April

Yesterday, our ferry suffered a major breakdown, as I posted on here. Well, the backwash duly arrived. I spoke to some people who had been subjected to a 6-hour delay, with diverted journey through Skye, arriving into SY at 2 am. They were still bleary-eyed twelve hours later, as someone had to put them up in their private home.

I went on an amble around the shopping precincts of Stornoway, including Point Street, North Beach and Cromwell Street. From North Beach, it could be seen that the works on Lews Castle are progressing well.
