We had a lovely visit from Leslie Evans yesterday. Leslie is the permanent secretary to the Scottish Government – the head of the civil service in Scotland. As such, she is the principal policy advisor to the First Minister and secretary to the Scottish cabinet. She was on Tiree meeting folk to find out about island life and the joys and hardships associated with living in a remote community. In the few hours she was on the island she met over thirty people. A flying visit but hugely appreciated by those who met her.
