Some slightly sloppy journalism this week…
An article in this week’s Guardian titled Harris tweed’s fashion return reported that more than 630 metres of tweed had been sold this year, compared with 450 last year. That should have been 630,000 compared with 450,000.
Also in the Guardian this week, the Scottish Gaelic title of Murdo Macleod’s book Gnùis does not mean “genius”, as they claimed in “The 10 best photographic portraits” (New Review). It means “face”.
Finally today’s Herald informed us that four Orkney butchers were joining forces to protect the designation of Stornoway Black Pudding.
Gle mhath chaps!
