Take a look at the blog, The Road North – with its text and images – by Ken Cockburn. It considers aspects of his stay on Harris, with an emphasis in and around Rhenigidale. Why not undertake similar yourself? The log-books at the hostel have comments by visitors; the blogs appearing on the internet have observations by those people who wish to share information. Individuals who use the Gatliff hostels tend to be interested in what they are doing as well as interesting company. Among them are existing as well as prospective bloggers. Are you one?
Actually the chances are quite high – for it was estimated last April that there were then 101.7 million blogs in existence worldwide, with 44.6 billion entries. About 30% of these are to be found in the USA and 7% in the UK. Certainly sufficient for choice and an indication that there are many people with time on their hands as well as information at their fingertips.
