When this post is published, I shall be leaving Stornoway. I have stayed in the town (on and off) since early 2005, but found that I could not make it economically sustainable to carry on. I have enjoyed my involvement with local history, and photographing the scenic beauty of Lewis and Harris. My internet output on those subjects will remain on-line.
Although I am returning to the Netherlands, I am not resuming posting in the Shell Gallery blog. This in fact is now also closed (with a parallel post). My years of going back and forth between Scotland and Holland, the way I have done for the past ten years, are over.
It is 10 years and two days since I opened Atlantic Lines. With a degree of sadness, I am closing it this morning.
A new blog is now on-line on: https://cobbled-road.blogspot.com/
