Pleased to be Home?
The 90 Lewis Chessmen found on Ardroil Beach, Uig, in 1831 have been in care with museum authorities for quite some time. 29 of them came back from Edinburgh to be on display in Stornoway since last April. 21,000 visitors viewed them there. Then six of them were taken on a flying visit to Uig where the local historical society had brief custody. If you are feeling more cheerful than they would appear, then read about it in this week's Stornoway Gazette.
When even the Queen looks concerned about being at home again, then it's time to check-out and get back to the capital.
