The Summer Isles, photographed here by Angus Bruce, has been issuing its own stamps since September 1970. These 'carriage' sometimes known as 'Cinderella' varieties have currency on Tanera Mor, but need to be supplemented by Royal Mail stamps to get anywhere on the Mainland. The last issue was in 2013 and the next will be a week on Friday - 26 February. So find out more through the Summer Isles website check out the 2016 designs and be ready to acquire your own carriage-collection.
