A light breeze at Ness. Via Cloudpurple


Had to laugh at poor Island Thread’s battle with the Lewis gales (sorry!).

A windproof fence? On Lewis?? Now that’s optimism! As Calum From Ness commented:

…the Good Lord seems to have made a fairly decent fist of the landscaping in the first place and it doesn’t need a ‘landscape gardener’ advertising in the Gazette to improve on it. 

To be fair it looks like the workman did a pretty poor job of plonking some 4x2s into the boggy peat.  A refund is in order I think. Maybe a line of Stonehead’s gate posts might have done the job but I suspect anything short of a stone dyke will continue be sent sailing.
