Sunday 29 June

Isles FM, our local radiostation, has been off air since last Tuesday, after a powersurge or lightning strike. However, I still get the carrier on the 103.0 MHz. Engineers are due round on Monday to sort out the problem.

At lunchtime, the St Kilda swimmers took the plunge from Huisinis, Harris, to commence their 60 mile swim to St Kilda. They hope to arrive there on Tuesday, weather, waves and creatures permitting.

A tragic road traffic accident at Strombane, North Uist, killed the local manager of a haulage firm last night. Everybody in Uist knew William K. Morrison. RIP.

  1. Hello,
    we (my husband and I) love Harris, but we have never heard, that there is a sport event Swimming to St. Kilda. Do they really swim to St.Kilda?
    I see, there are now windmills in Lewis (Harris as well?). But I think it is now about 5 years we have been to Harris.
    Thank You for Your blog. So I hear about the outer hebrides.
    Kind regards

    1. Hello Braunelle, they tried to swim to St Kilda (for the first time) last week, but had to stop due to high waves. There are some small windmills in Harris, not as big as some of the ones in Lewis. Hope you can soon return to the Long Island.
