1 EAGLETON NOTES: The Leaving of Lewis

The Leaving of Lewis

The MV Isle of Lewis is the Island's lifeline with the mainland of Scotland and, consequently, the rest of the world. Sounds dramatic doesn't it? It is. The ferry is something we take so for granted but, believe me, if it doesn't run the disruption to our life is very considerable. So on Wednesday I boarded her for my latest skirmish into the wilds of the mainland.
