The Scarinish hotel was very good for its 2 stars and the food was outstanding.
The views of the islands on the way out are just spectacular and enough reason alone to make the trip. There is a VOR on the field and an extremely helpful and friendly ATC. There is no fuel but careful planning and a dipstick should mean very little inconvenience. If I had not had adverse winds and weather I would have flown direct to/from Carlisle.
It is easy to hire a bicycle; a car is hardly necessary as the island is relatively flat and there is a very cheap ‘ring and ride’ bus service. There are numerous spectacular beaches.
As expected, the islanders were all very helpful and friendly. It is odd initially to get a wave from every (infrequent) passing car. There is no virgin mobile service but major networks are probably OK.
