The Windy Butt of Lewis

I know this sounds like a joke, but there actually is a place called the Butt of Lewis.  Seriously, I’m not kidding you.  What’s even funnier is the fact that it was in the Guinness Book of Records as the windiest place in the UK.  This really is true.  Because it’s Friday and I find this so amusing, …

While I was in the Outer Hebrides, there were times when I wished I had a car.  It would have been so much quicker and easier, and I would have been able to see so much more.  However, the more bus journeys I took, the more I realised that I would have missed something if …
