One from the Hebrides...

For some reason this evening I fancied playing around with some holiday pictures - I kind of expected to go through and find some I'd not processed before, but instead I found myself re-processing the one above. The deposit confirmation for the cottage has arrived now, and it is always at this point that thoughts start turning to heading back. The RET scheme has been confirmed for an additional year on its trial period, which is good for us as it halves the costs of the ferry fares to, and from Lochamaddy, and there is also some talk of relief on fuel duty in the islands - to the tune of 5p per litre. This would by no means make fuel over there the same price as on the mainland, but it would certainly go some way to bringing costs down.

gorgeous - you obviously had a fair weather holiday. RET has been great for me - cuts my island hopping costs :)

Thanks Donnie - lovely always to get a comment but when it's from someone who's work you really admire it makes it all the sweeter! Thank you!
RET is great - we sincerely hope that they keep it going - it halves the cost of the crossings for us and next year that will make a real difference to us as our circumstances have recently changed. The difference it makes to those folks living there all the time or just visiting the islands regularly to see family or take photographs is incredible.
