P-P Penguin, penguin waiting for a bus, Scalpay Outer Hebrides.
On the lovely little Island of Scalpay. It’s only since 1997, that there has been any chance of catching a bus either to or from Scalpay.
Prior to 1997, the residents of Scalpay were reliant on a small, sporadic ferry to transport them 300 meters across the Sound of Harris onto North Harris. Thanks to generous funding provided by the European Union, work commenced to connect the two islands by bridge. Making this dream a reality would be challenging and costly; £6.4 million to be exact.
