Hiatus on Harris
Not one, but two bus services in Harris have been temporarily withdrawn and they involve two of the most beautiful scheduled routes in Britain. One involves the 18.35 weekday and all Saturday buses to and from Tarbert - Scalpay; the other is the carrying of members of the public on the school services to and from Tarbert - Rhenigidale. They both convey passengers on relatively new stretches of highway. The Scalpay Bridge opened in 1997, while the road to Rhenigidale carried vehicles from 1989. The latter is frequented by travellers using the facilities of the Gatliff Hostels.
Scottish Islands Explorer - hopes that normal services will be resumed asap
