Visit to Lewis:
I met the MacKenzie family at Crossbost on Friday 2nd May to discuss issues about crofting township management and common grazing regulations. Here I am with Sandy and Mairi MacKenzie in their garden.

"So come all ye at hame wi freedom....aw the roses and geans will turn tae bloom" [words from the Freedom Come-All-Ye by Hamish Henderson]. This picture in my garden in Evanton shows the geans in ours and our neighbours gardens bursting into flower. 5th May, just like the first year's achievement of the Scottish Government!
