Scottish Islands Explorer - Delay in Publication of the May / June 2014 Issue

We have been hit by a 'triple whammy' and your patience is requested. At a critical time of production, Deborah Bryce, our designer, was involved, as a passenger, in a car accident and has been in hospital since Sunday 6 April. All being well, she should be back on Jura on Good Friday. The back-up version of her design was found to be incompatible with the software at the Studio of the printing company. The Easter Holiday close-down will not help. Consequently we hope that this issue will be with you and in the shops by Saturday 26 April. Meanwhile we wish Deborah a full recovery and look forward to seeing her skills on display, in print, within the next ten days.

The March / April 2014 issue is available in the shops.

There are items on Islands in Bloom, a Castle Island, the Harris Coffin Road, intriguing intruders on Islay, Unst - 'The Island Above All Others' - and aerial views of the Neolithic legacies on Orkney. The literary connections of J R R Tolkien are assessed and the physical connections of the Crinan Canal are explained. There are opportunities to acquire goods as well as as a free day-trip to St Kilda and a week-long stay on Mull as a result of a charitable donation.

The ninth of the 'island-crosswords' compiled by Tom Johnson, whose puzzles appear regularly in the Spectator and Financial Times, is sponsored by the Islands Book Trust which offers a free year's membership to the winning entrant.
