Tuesday 19 August

Reasonably nice day in Stornoway, with good sunny spells but also spells of drizzle. Slightly milder today, with the mercury at 14C / 57F, but continuing to feel cold in the northerly wind.

Chief Secretary to the Treasury, Danny Alexander MP, was in Stornoway today to announce additional funding for Gaelic broadcaster MG Alba. On attending a meeting on the subject of the independence referendum, he also mentioned Harris Tweed - but I cannot find any references to that in local news output. His visit to Stornoway is part of a Scotland-wide tour, see https://www.gov.uk/government/news/danny-alexander-to-take-the-case-for-staying-in-the-uk-to-all-corners-of-scotland
