For the uninitiated, the Dell Fank is a dating festival, held on April 1st. Fellow Lewis blogger Calumannabel is the prime mover behind this extravaganza. Unfortunately, the site as was is now a grade 2 listed building (I'm talking about the portaloos), so can no longer be used.
Participants are usually shipped in on board MV Muirneag in the case of the guys, and on the Isle of Lewis in the case of the gals. Desperate singles from the Northern Isles usually arrive on log, paddling all the way around Cape Wrath. Overseas participants fly into Callanish International Airport, where the Green Channel puts the one at Stornoway Airport to shame.
On arrival at Stornoway, a dedicated bus will take the hopeful to the fank, which is located some 20 miles north of Stornoway.
I have mooted to use Prince Charlie's Monument as the venue for the dating extravaganza this year.
This hill towers over Glumag Harbour and has a convenient loch, where participants can cool off their ardour. The Glumag has excellent berthing facilities for all sorts of ships, including logs. The location is just outside the Arnish Fabrication Yard, and it is not without self-interest, as Arnish Lighthouse is but a hop and a step.
