Quite a nice morning, once again, with good sunny intervals. A moderate to fresh southerly breeze and the thermometer at a decent 9C / 48F. The barometer has reached the dizzying heights of 1033 mbar, something we haven't seen for quite a while. Points further south will see a higher reading, as we are on the north flank of an area of high pressure over England.
There have been a flurry of complaints about our ferry service of late. The Isle of Lewis breaking down, its replacement and the bad weather all contriving to sully the reputation of Calmac. They can't help the weather.
