Mail and Male Matters
Here is an 'end-of-the-road' image with a bus stop and post box showing that there is human activity on Vatersay, at the southern and western end of the Outer Hebrides. The box below, close to the island's post office, is the most westerly in Britain and a letter posted here has been tracked and featured on the BBC website in time for the busiest part of the Royal Mail's year. There's an interesting connection in the item about the number of males and the amount of mail.
