Back from Stornoway …

I was in Stornoway yesterday with the “day job” addressing a group of the local authority’s elected members – a thoroughly enjoyable experience, but a very long day (up at 4.30am; back home 10pm and playing “catch up” today!)

It was a beautiful day in Stornoway as you can see from the photos – Stornoway Harbour (top), the airport (right) and Lews Castle (below). The castle – built for Sir James Matheson in 1847 – is situated in extensive wooded grounds overlooking Stornoway Harbour. There’s an interesting website about the castle (click on the headline above to view).
