Go away me, you are frightening me and if me screams then only you and me can hear it, so who is me?

copag from Eriskay

Yes we are still here with fond memmories of Stornoway from 1968-69 when the RAF Base was in operation and we all lived in digs, I stayed at 4 seaveiw terrace. Stornoway is not forgoten, I still have my phtographs.

My Mrs comes from Eriskay, its a nice place(when your indoors with the central heating up full bung!!) been up a few times, the causeway is great, nice to see yous on the web...

Chris Mcbamm from Glasgow

I going to eriskay for me holidays , looking forward to getting a tan, any chance

geoff macinnes from milton keynes

Geoff M - don't forget your sunblock ... Factor 73 (AKA A Sou-wester). Forget the tan - don't need it, you'll have a ball. Spent 2 weeks there in a dear friend of mine's croft. Phenomenal sunsets, partiularly over the isles, late light nights. Stunning views. Clear water (brrr) of Prince Charlie's Bay. Don't miss Barra (share the beach with the coos). The new Wembley Football Stadium has nothing on the Eriskay Field. Try the great lobsters, from just over the causeway (be nice to the fishermen, and you will). PS .... it will rain, and a tadd windy!

Jim from Dubai (temp)

Peter , I lived in Seaview Terrace then to . Was it with Nonie you were in digs with ?

anne from stornoway

Yes! someone is here who loves Eriskay very much is out there waiting for all the news from Eriskay.

Catriona from kingston

Just to let you know that I'm busy knitting the Eriskay Gansey sweater. Something of a challenge, but I think it will be worth it when I've finished it. Is there anybody else out there who's knitted one.

So, no one else knitting an Eriskay Gansey then? Oh dear, I was hoping to compare notes, and no I don't come from Eriskay, I was born in Carrickfergus, Northern Ireland.
