A Saturday busservice in Stornoway, gratefully used by several people. It was bitterly cold with a steady procession of sharp hailshowers. With each shower, the streets were swept clean of shoppers. A thick layer of ice was left on the roads and pavements. The sun shines quite innocently in between. For lunch I decided on a break in routine, and go into restaurant HS-1, an annex to the Royal Hotel on Cromwell Street. A very acceptable chicken tikka baguette with soup of the day. Big chucks of chicken, seas of tikka. Yummy. Suitably fortified set off for the shopping, to head back on the 2.20 bus. Had hoped to take lunch at An Lanntair, in the town hall, but that's been shut down.
