Congratulations to Harris!

The Isle of Harris has just voted to turn their island into Scotland's third national park, following on from Loch Lomond and the Trossachs, and the Cairngorms. The full story is at http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/scotland/highlands_and_islands/7899003.stm.

If you haven't been to Harris, you've somewhere beautiful still to visit. I fired a rocket there once for a TV programme, but it wasn't in anger...! (And if you're learning Gaelic, it's easier to understand them there than in Lewis! ha!).

Good luck to the Hearrachs!
