What an amazing day it has been on the Isle of Tiree:
Winds gusting to 74mph, just 4mph short of Thursday’s powerful storm.
Waves crashing on the shore and combined with the wind producing spectacular spindrift.
Blue, Grey and Musk Skies and stunning storm clouds.
Driving hail storms
Living-room windows that look like bathroom windows

There has been no ferry for four days and tomorrow’s ferry is at best delayed with a decision being made at 10:00am. Although there have been fewer cancellations this winter, this is the longest time without a ferry since moving to the island.

Thankfully we have power so we are warm and cosy with plenty to eat. (In the outer Hebrides there are still homes without power.) And believe it or not Tiree was the warmest place in the Strathclyde Weather region yesterday with a maximum temperature of 8.9 °C. It doesn’t feel like that when the wind is gusting! Today’s walk down Pier Road ended up being more like run due to the 60mph gusts.
