Gorgeous day - in Bosta, where dozens of people thronged the beach. Blackpool of the Hebrides? Complete with jellyfish, tides coming in and tourist boats coming to have a peep. What d'ya mean, no dogs ;-) My trip to Bosta was done on the bus, which takes an hour 15 minutes from Stornoway for £5.50 return - the distance is 29 miles one way. You need to change at Garynahine. On the way back, there was a 40 minute wait for the connecting service back into Stornoway. I'll be the last to complain about the buses in Lewis and Harris.
