Life on Tiree boarded the ferry for Oban in order to catch the train to Glasgow and the overnight train to London, eventually arriving in Aylesbury. Before ascending the gangway at Tiree, the question was “Who would be keeping up the blog?”
Life on Tiree is pleased to report that the cable ship René Descartes is in the Passage of Tiree and heading for Calgary in Mull. This is the vessel which will lay the fibre optic cable from Calgary to Scarinish. As they say ‘one small step for’ Tiree. Experience this summer has demonstrated that connection to the fibre network cannot come too soon for our island, but that will require a few more giant steps.
