View across the Outer Harbour of Stornoway

The picture currently fronting this blog shows Dalmore beach, without an oilrig, as it was on 23 March 2011. The Transocean Winner ran aground at Dalmore in the early hours of 8 August 2016 and is likely to stay there for several weeks before it can be removed. The front picture will remain up until the rig is gone.


  1. Opps, I left a comment on the previous post about this, but I might not have saved? I don't see it. You just know someone will venture out onto the cliffs. I hope no damage is done, beyond the past one.
    Have you traveled those cliffs, Guido?

  2. I know the area very well, Mary, and have come along those cliffs a few times before now.
