Saved from the Water
The waters of North Uist are either of the wide sea or from its many inland lochs. These photographs, taken from a 1946 Auster aircraft, show how extensive they are. Recently a prehistoric basket was retrieved on the shore and it has now been been sent for analysis. The first suggestions are that it is 3,500 years old. The Stornoway Gazette item supplies more details.
