The Council have announced that the accommodation at Lews Castle is to be managed by the company Natural Retreats. The article in the Gazette shows its a contentious subject, and a whiff of self-serving attitudes about those who are complaining against the award of the Lews Castle contract to Natural Retreats. There is insufficient accommodation in Stornoway during the summer months, and I cannot understand why anyone would want to complain against getting more beds, other than perceived competition against their own interests.
Power went off at 2pm for half an hour. However, the supermarket had to close for a full hour before their computersystems were back on.
By the end of the evening, the weather took a turn for the worse - rain all evening. Temperature never shifted much off 14C / 57F all day. Spent the evening talking German to some visitors. Have to stop myself now from capitalising all Nouns.
