Ten (ish) reasons why teenagers may not like Hannigarth
(with apologies to my children)
There isn't a shower.
There is no internet access.
Mobile phone signal is low or non-existent.
Most activities involve walking.
People occupy the same room for meals and in the evenings.
The TV is neither flat nor widescreen and there is no Sky or cable.
The weather presents many opportunities for reading books and playing board games.
The radio is permanently set to Radio 4 (although Radio 2 can be found with a bit of effort).
There are two gates to be opened and closed (and guess who's job that will be).
White trainers and sheep poo don't mix (well, they do but ...).
It's the wrong sort of beach (well, it's the right sort of beach but in the wrong place).
One reason why teenagers may like Hannigarth
There are a lot of bus shelters on the island.
