There was still an hour or two of daylight left after I checked in at the Guest House. A chance to have a bimble. A few minutes to walk to the harbour and town centre. A magnificent lifeboat. I would love to look around the inside of one of those. Maybe they could sell guided tours for a donation.

I got chatting to two ladies who were washing up in their campervan. They were parked for the night, waiting for the ferry in the morning. They very kindly gave me their well used map as they wouldn't be needing it any longer. Some must see places are circled on it. I found this map useful. As you can see there aren't many 'A' roads on the islands. Only one circular route, most of them were out and back type roads, and very narrow at that. Lewis is the biggest island, with Harris tagged on at the bottom.
Here is a good site to explore Stornoway from the comfort of your home.
I'll stop there and continue tomorrow. More exciting stuff to come. It's a sunny start to the day and I have more work to do in the garden. Click on a picture to bring up a slide show.
Thanks for popping in. Toodle pip. ilona
