  1. Nigel Bridgman-Elliot .. that photo is a bit scary as that is probably the exact position my car was in when the car (in the same position) in your picture pulled right out before me! thankfully I wasn't going the speed limit, and I have a little light car that can stop quickly, but it was really close!
  2. I had a VERY close call there today and it really shook me up! it is such a blackspot!! a friend suggested a roundabout would make it safer, what do you think?
  3. Hi, it's been a while . The town centre is suffering from high rates, impossible access (squared off speed bumps) & limited accessible free parking - this is killing off the local business's. Until these problems are addressed, folk will go elsewhere.
  4. That wouldn't worry me.. lol The "wet bit" of the building has never changed, surely it should be shrinking? So !! do I get a gold star for realizing that the whole thing was faulty? This will cost a fortune to sort oot! and should be the responsibility of the original contractor!! Sorry, quoted the wrong post, but it's about the state of the Red Cross Building! it looks terrible now as the wet patches have never dried out, and are now reacting with the stone underneath. Hopefully the contractors work came with a guarantee.

  6. Just a thought .. I didn't notice the Northbound boat with luggage scanners, or did I miss it?
  7. No it was a Shetlander with an Islander card .. but does it matter? if a company doesn't want their staff to take alcohol onboard the boat then they should enforce it themselves, it shouldn't be Northlink discriminating against all their foot passengers.
  8. One of the people this has happened to had a cabin, but had a bottle of wine confiscated from their hand luggage at the scanner before they got onboard and returned in the morning. Of course you wouldn't drink your own alcohol in the bar areas! but in the cabin you've paid through the nose for it shouldn't be a problem. And why is it only foot passengers that are being targeted? if you come in by car you can take whatever you like onboard! even if you don't have a cabin.
  9. Sorry to change this subject ... But, when did Northlink start scanning foot passengers (not car drivers/passengers) luggage to check for alcohol? and if they find any, they confiscate it and only return it in the morning.. is this legal??
  10. I should maybe explain a bit better ... just after 10 pm last night on the boat southbound in really thick fog it suddenly lurched to the port side crashing all the glasses off the tables in the bar and going so far over it caused alarm to the passengers and crew even though the sea was flat calm!! half an hour later when the boat docked in Orkney (2230) it was explained to us that the boat had to take evasive action to avoid a ship that was anchored ??
  11. I'm not seeing this sorry .. We were coming fae the north last night...
  12. Is there any wye of seeing how close we came to hitting the "anchored" ship outside Kirkwall harbour last night? with the North boat, it certainly felt as if it was "evasive action" !!
  13. Personally, I really enjoyed it! in my opinion it was much better than the original one, and I didn't manage to guess who dun it! I also think we are very lucky to have the free advertising of our lovely Islands.
  14. 3 course meal at the Scalloway Hotel tonight .. couldn't fault it .. 1st class! .. wine was brill too lol
  15. I logged in at 10 am, after 1 "timeout" I got my tickets
