Washed Up Well
When a sailor on the Maersk Iowa, a container ship that's over 300 yards long, throws overboard a bottle containing a message and an email address, he or she hopes for the best in these circumstances. It turns up over 1400 miles away, on a beach in Sollas, North Uist, and is found by the owner of a gift company, Coralbox, based on Berneray. The story is there to be uncorked in the Stornoway Gazette.
