Two sleeps

and we will know our fate. Will Lewis be the foundation stone for 180 turbines, each standing 450 feet tall, stretching over 40 miles from Port of Ness to Bragar to Stornoway? Or not.

I am keeping an open mind, and await the final decision - with interest. The signals are interesting. The Chambers of Commerce were silenced by the Minister for Energy, for complaining that Scotland could not be seen not to be open for business. Unhelpful, was his verdict.

The business community as a whole has rallied behind the project. BBC News appeared to come from Cuddy Point on Tuesday evening - I passed the BBC vans on the way over the Bragar that afternoon.

Went to visit the War Memorial there, and was sorry to note that the lettering had already started to fade - quite badly, actually, at the top of some of the panels.
