Monday 12 August

This morning, news came out that a holiday maker had died after getting into difficulties while swimming off the west coast of Harris. Apparently, the 45-year old woman from London had gone into the sea after first her son, and then her husband got into trouble. Locals tell me that they would not readily take to the water there themselves due to strong currents.
