A brilliantly sunny day, with the mercury shooting up to as much as 17C / 63F during the afternoon. Naturally took full advantage of the conditions - out in the sunshine.

The cruiseliner Serenissima paid us a visit today; the liner is shown departing at 9.30pm. She gained a degree of notoriety in Oban a few days ago, by running aground on a sandback after passing on the wrong side of a marker buoy. The vessel managed to refloat on a rising tide.
I went for a walk between 8 and 9pm this evening, one of my customary jaunts to Cuddy Point and Lews Castle. Stornoway town centre is virtually deserted after the shops close, but the buildings of the town were bathed in a mellow, almost summery, glow.
