The Tahitian Princess passed by the house this evening on her way to the Faroe Isles. It's not a particularly large cruise liner but it seemed quite big compared with the usual fishing boat that plies this side of The Minch. The many large tankers and so on that go up and down The Minch rarely come over this side (the defined shipping lane for tankers is away from the Island). Anyway I thought it was worth a photo and mention because she is a long way from home and her usual haunts in the warmer climes of the Pacific. The mountains in the background are the Scottish Highlands.
