A schoolboy from Glasgow on a mission to collect all of Scotland’s RNLI lifeboat stations has come two steps closer to his goal after a visit to the Western Isles.

Lee Moyes was in Stornoway last week with parents Alyson and Garry, spending family time in the islands during his Easter holidays.

During the trip they made the most of travelling west for Lee to add to his collection of RNLI lifeboat stations, with stops at RNLI Portree, RNLI Kyle and at Leverburgh and Stornoway.

RNLI Stornoway posted pictures of his visit and said: “What a special visitor we had this week. Last year during lockdown, Lee started to watch Saving Lives At Sea and became hooked on lifeboats.

“He is aiming to visit all lifeboat stations in Scotland by July and, with visiting Stornoway, he only has five left to visit. Thank you for stopping by Lee, it was great to meet you and good luck with the rest of your adventures.”

Mum Alyson said the family had ‘an amazing time’ in Lewis and Harris. She said: “Have had all weathers – snow, rain, sun and blowing a hoolie.

“Ticked off RNLI Stornoway and RNLI Leverburgh, stunning beaches and Lee enjoyed meeting the sheep and lambs.”
