We had a very wintry trip to Lewis
in January. We had hoped to travel on the 11th but the ferry did not run. The next day we arrived about 2pm and we found that AMK Tipper Hire from Callanish had already knocked down the old oil structure and had the re-enforced concrete ready to lay as foundations for the parking.
This was despite very severe weather, which worsened throughout the afternoon. The enormous digger certainly flattened the ground but the driver was very skilled and dug new drainage as well. By 4.30pm in the afternoon the foundations were dug out.
The weather worsened the next day and the digger could work for only one and a half hours. Unfortunately we had to leave for a family event but much to my delight I received these pictures of work in progress and by the beginning of the next week " job done"
Even with stormy weather Lewis is a magic place and we managed to walk into the shore and see the crashing waves and hardy sea birds.
On our next visit we will lay paving stones, mend the washing line and generally tidy up ready for our visitors.
The work is a big improvement on the parking and the new shed will be great for picnic ,barbecue and sports equipment. I'm sure our regular visitors will see a difference.
wE are very excited and look forward to welcoming you all this year.
