When the LNG tank at Risa Vika was being developed, a new pedestrian road to the isles was promised. Sure enough, the promise is being fulfilled, and I hope to be one of the first to walk onto this island, which was previously only accessible by boat.

Are you planning to extend this road to England, Amelia?

Amelia Royan on June 7, 2010

Thank you John, I'm happy that you liked this photo :))

Good morning David, this is a very busy shipping lane, and getting busier all the time. They have blasted hell out of the local cliffs to both flatten the land for building, and to extend into the sea as well. The plan is that the area will become the biggest industrial port in Norway ... and progress is rapid! In the 2.5 years since I have been here there have been many changes :(

Hello Bonnie Lad, it's hardly the route to Glenfinnan and Lochailort, through Arisaig and Morar ending at Mallaig that Bonnie Prince Charlie took, but maybe it's a start:) I didn't watch the Eorovision BTW, I was in England and couldn't get the TV to work **;-)

Good morning OLYMPIST, I'm pleased that you liked this one. It is really just a photo to show the changes that are happening, so quickly, in this area :))

Hi Norrel, a bit of left hand down a bit, and I could drive all the way to Scotland - my homeland. I keep throwing large boulders in the sea ... but then I'd lose my KLM silver elite status :))))

Warm greetings from Tananger, Amelia

Norrel on June 7, 2010

Scotland is your homeland? I've rented a cottage in Scotland (near Ben Nevis) to spend my summer holiday.

Amelia Royan on June 7, 2010

I was born in Scotland and loved there until I was 13. All my ancestors as far back as the early eighteenth century were Scots, but of course we have been invaded several times ... so who knows :)))

I hope you get good weather up there - don't forget to take the 'midge cream' (insect repellent). They can be a total pain :))

Amelia Royan on June 7, 2010

Or even lived there - but I loved it as well - still do :)))

Norrel on June 7, 2010

LOL! Thanks for the advice on the midge cream, Amelia!

Great shot Amelia, but no a track I wid waste a new cromach on. Charlie landed at Mallaig? He probable took took the Jacobite traim? :) cheers scally.

Amelia Royan on June 14, 2010

Aye Scally, Aa widnae waste a cromach either, but they hivnae finished wi' it yet!

In fact, they now seem to be driving piles into the sea, so the road might become a bridge :)))

Why is it important to have a bridge to these isles dear Amelia?

Amelia Royan on August 16, 2010

To get away from the LNG tank :))))

Amelia Royan on November 25, 2010

This is what the completed structure looks like now.

Purely by chance, I happened to meet up with the fellow Panoramian who took this linked photo. We spent a good hour or two having a lovely chat :))
