The Search for Happiness
Those who search for happiness should consider the researches of a team working at the National Office for Statistics. Their findings for the UK put island groups in the top positions for this attribute among residents. See the Stornoway Gazette for details. Pictured here are two places to consider - just a few miles apart as the crow (or whatever flies). Above is Garyvard ('the poet's garden') and Kershader in the South Lochs of Lewis. Scenery, neighbours, a good road, shop, cafe and 24-hour petrol at the Ravenspoint Centre. Below is Eishken, with a large house, massive estate, fishing and ... no neighbours in any direction.
