Not a Fools' Visit
This Eriskay pony is unaware that tomorrow will see the opening of Kisimul Castle in Castlebay, Barra, for the new season. Apparently the Arnol Blackhouse on Lewis is also opening. The availability of things to do on the Sabbath has never been restricted in the islands south of Benbecula, but to be aware that a public attraction to the north is on offer still gives a slight shock of surprise. Fuller details are in this week's Stornoway Gazette and for a fine range of photographs of Barra, go no further than the gallery of the Tigh-na-Mara Guest House.
