We spent 2 weeks in a cottage on South Uist. For those of you who don't know much Scottish geography, South Uist is one of the Outer Hebrides; an island chain off the north west of the British mainland. It's fairly remote, though they do have electricity, postmen, shops and so on. Also, it's one of the last places where Gaelic is still spoken in the home.

To try to keep this article at least somewhat focused on a history and military theme, I did take a picture of a ruined iron age wheelhouse (circa 200AD):

Normal service will be resumed soon. In the meantime, I'm feeling very relaxed :-) ...
