Expedition & Excursion
Here is a photograph of Mealista on the west coast of Lewis, beyond Uig. It was taken in 1979 when the Schools Hebridean Society organised an expedition there. In the background is the mile-long Mealista Island to which - on Saturday 17 May - the Islands Book Trust will be running an excursion from Husinish, North Harris. The details are to be found both on its website and below. So that's 35 years between the expedition and an excursion. It is, however, 181 years since the island was permanently inhabited.
