In Lewis a bit windy Met Willie Mac staying at Bragar for a few nights.


We had a lot very night at Black Bridge with Anne and Mark for the ferry from Ullapool to Stornaway. The weather was ok a bit of a swell but a good 2 hour crossing.

Then shop in Stornaway and go and find the illusive Willie Mac who joined RAF Mountain Rescue as a young lad in the 80’s. He ended up Team Leader and Warrant officer in charge. A great pal we climbed all over together in Himalayas, Pakistan and Tibet.He is now back to being a crafter in Lewis. Poor Kalie had to listen to some tales.

We then had a wee walk to the beautiful beach and then on to our accommodation in Bragar.
