Very wet and windy this morning. There is a delay on the ferry from Tarbert to Uig today, 90 minutes which are likely to continue through the day. That route has been particularly busy, with delays due to volume of traffic common. Our service is on the "three a day" schedule today, which sees a final arrival at 2.45 am.
There are now regular warnings about elevated levels of algal toxins in some of our lochs. Today, it's Loch Erisort. Shellfish taken from Loch Erisort could make you quite ill.
In the afternoon, went on a brief visit to the Ravenspoint Centre at Kershader, 22 miles from Stornoway by road (12 miles as the crow flies). It plays host to a small museum, cafe, shop and hostel. I stayed there for a number of weeks during the 2004/05 winter. The museum is small but lovely, full of the gadgets of yesteryear. A portable pulpit, anyone?
