Wednesday 9 April

Afternoon all from a very wet Stornoway. Although it isn't really that cold, the rain is fairly tipping down. Not an outside day, therefore I shall do more digging. I keep finding additions and corrections for my WW1 listings, so that will be on my menu this afternoon.

If you bear in mind the population of this island, I think we have a very good and cheap bus service. The only exception is the route to Uig, where the first bus out of Stornoway leaves at midday, and you have to be careful about your return trip in the afternoon - not all days of the week. However, if you wish to travel to Leverburgh for the day (55 miles from Stornoway), it's only about £10 return. A single ticket for the Ullapool to Inverness bus (similar distance) costs £12. Frequencies to the more populated rural areas (Point, Back and Ness) are quite acceptable (every 1-3 hours). What is the population of Lewis? About 20,000, just under half of which live in Stornoway.
