Only one Union flag is to be seen flying on Gigha
Sir, In a recent edition of the Courier, I took particular heed to a letter from Alastair Redman, Portnahaven, Islay, stating that on a visit to Gigha he was heartened by the number of so-called Union flags.
Well, in the past few weeks, I have discovered but one. It is on a flagpole next to Gigha Hotel. It is one of three flags; the others being the Isle of Gigha Heritage Trust flag and the Saltire, reminding us of our patron saint.
Is it possible that, since Mr Redman’s visit, an easterly gale has blown all the other Union flags over to Islay, where there is perhaps a shortage?
Do not forget, Mr Redman, thanks to the Scottish Government, eye tests are free. John Martin, Grianan, Isle of Gigha.
