Back on post
Returned from a week away to the mainland, which reminded me why I prefer the islands to the city. Whilst in Glasgow, I attended a shinty-match played between teams from Lewis and Glasgow. The islanders lost 6-0, but went down fighting. Pictures of that to follow.
Was fortunate in having mostly decent weather, apart from the Monday, which actually found me in the Isle of Bute - nice place, but a bit of an air "a la recherche des temps perdus" about Rothesay. Place makes an effort nonetheless, which is all that matters. Will also put a few piccies of Bute on here.
The elections to the Scottish Parliament have been done to death in the official media, and that's probably for the best. Saves me from applying my poison quill. We have a new MSP in the Western Isles, Alistair Allan, and I wish him well in his endeavours to improve the lot of these islands.
