Shepherd's hut for holiday let, Maraig

David Phillips of 7 Maaruig has applied for planning permission to erect a shepherd's hut to be used as a holiday let, at 3 Eileanabuich, Maraig. The building will be 5.1 metres long, 2.4 metres wide and 3 metres tall. The walls are to be clad in larch and painted blue.

Scotland's only Street Orchestra is heading for the Outer Hebrides, reaching the Isle of Harris on Friday (August 23rd).

The Nevis Ensemble has as its vision ‘music for everyone, everywhere’, and they are set to prove it with a series of concerts in community halls, schools and much less traditional venues – such as the beaches at Seilebost and Luskentyre.

Fire stations throughout Lewis and Harris will be open for all on Saturday (August 24th), as Fire Scotland makes a bid for new recruits to the service.

Fire stations in Stornoway, Ness, Shawbost, Great Bernera, South Lochs, Tarbert, Scalpay and Benbecula will all have their doors wide open between noon and 4pm with a host of come-and-try opportunities for young and old.
