Thursday 14 January

Stornoway greeted me in wintry hue when the sun rose, and it stayed cold all day. Nonetheless, it was sunny and bright in between the showers. Nothing much had changed in the 4 weeks I had been away.

Today, I had a relatively uneventful journey from eastern Holland back to Stornoway. Everything went on time, the bus, the train and the two planes. I was hurried through security at Inverness Airport, leaving me at the gate in stockinged feet. Met some nice people on the plane, including a batch of Dutch deerstalkers who didn't know where the Western Isles were, as well as a kind Dutch lady who kept some self-catering houses at Northton in Harris. Thank you all for making this dreary journey more enjoyable.
