Everyone is talking about it. It’s early March and 9 hours of coast to coast (or wall to wall) sunshine. “It’s always like this on Tiree” was the remark at the pier. This was said in view of the day that we had yesterday. The wind was gusting to 75mph for much of the day.

The prophets of doom (the weather forecasters) predict gale force winds for the next two days. We shall wait and see.
