You have my sympathy, June. I puked horribly on the way back. And I too had foolishly eaten. I should have known better as I have a track record with ferries.

I've thought of a couple more places for the Girlinwellies:
Dun Carloway - that's intact enough that you can imagine people living in it.

And the Gearrannan Blackhouses - I thought that was going to be a bit cheesy. But seeing the chap weaving tweed on an amazing old loom that stank of oil, and asking him all about it - it was superb. Also there are some videos of people cutting and stacking peat - the piles are everywhere you go and it brought a bit of that hard way of living to life.

Plus I also liked the museum in the castle at Stornoway (good if it rains) - some of the lewis chessmen are there, and there's also a room that immerses you in a film projected all round with sounds of the island, I liked that a lot. And fossils.

I could go on.
