There were times when such matters as communication, exposure to weather, access to medical services were completely out-of-control as far as people living in remote settlements were concerned. Now whether we live in Scotland, Spain, Samoa or South Shetland, the most isolated of places can be reached relatively easily. David and Margaret Gartside have been following this blog's recent trail of out-of-the-way houses and present a photograph of the ruins of the blackhouses on Lunga in the Treshnish Isles. To residents of these homes, Mull was a hub, not an off-shore island. To us, we can select the Ardnamurchan Charters website and see a range of Lunga and other Treshnish images. Here is a real case of remote control.
