Tanera Mhor, Summer Isles

Postmarked Summer Isles, dated 29 June 1984.

Clockwise from top left:
Old Inn, Fuchsia, Schoolhouse (left) and Farmhouse, Murdo's.

Hands up who knew where the Summer Isles were?  No, I hadn't heard of them either.  They are a group of islands off the north west of Scotland.  The one inhabited island is Tanera Mhor.  It has a salmon farm, a post office and a cafe.  The post office has printed its own stamps since 1970, and they are apparently much sought after.

  1. I love all the little things I learn visiting blogs. I hope people learn from mine also (I mean besides the fact that I am a Yankees fan).

    Thanks for visiting my blog!

  2. The rest of the islands are inhabited?

  3. @Bella, we will all be expert at Trivial Pursuit! :)

    @Mei Teng, no, that's the largest and only inhabited one.


Welcome to my postcard collection! I love hearing what you think of the cards - but spam WILL be deleted.
