A windy experience greeted Glenrothes MP Lindsay Roy on a visit to the Western Isle of Tiree.
The visit was part of the ongoing enquiry by Scottish Affairs Select Committee.
Lindsay said: “It was mainly sunny and the islands looked wonderful, but the wind was very, very strong.
“When we came into land at Benbecula, the pilot made three attempts before deciding it was just too dangerous and headed for Stornoway on Lewis instead. It was pretty hairy in a small plane!”
