An Unexpected Visitor
We are well used to welcoming visitors from all over the world to our Islands. This year it was estimated that over 70 cruise liners were booked to visit. However, yesterday saw the most unexpected of visitors arriving at Dalmore beach, on the West coast of Lewis. A 17,000 tonne oil rig, which ran aground after breaking her tow in the early hours of Monday morning.
Suffice to say, it has caused quite a stir, both locally and nationally!
