Wednesday 3 September

I had an enjoyable half hour's walk around the harbour between midday and half past twelve, watching the ships tied up, coming or going - it was surprisingly busy by Stornoway standards. For local people: the gate at the quay between the ferry and Amity House is currently closed as they are discharging the coalboat , which involves lorries manoeuvering close to the quayside. Once the Burhuoi has gone, the gate should be open again. For now, you'll have to cut through Quay Street.

It later transpired that a crane barge which I pictured moving around the harbour was in fact moving to raise a sunken craft from the inner harbour. The Pathfinder had sunk at its moorings overnight, after returning from Lochmaddy the day before.

Shown: Seabourn Legend, Burhoui (x2), MV Isle of Lewis and MV Hebridean Princess, a crane barge and the Seabourn Legend departing.
