What should we do about the A83? Tunnel? Different road? A bridge somewhere?

At the game as spectator - good game, lots of power good shape and organised too. Handbags a bit too often from both sides. That mail defence is annoying... as it tackling beyond the ruck from both sides. Brutal game. Glad I’m 60...

Think you mean Fair Isle (north, not west) But St Kilda - or at least main island Hirta - does have a power station for the missile tracking station. The people who ran it called themselves the Kilda Generating Board, or KGB. So the area next to the power station was Red Square.
