Hebriderne Barra

Eriskay´s eneste pub, The Politician, som vist kun eksisterer i kraft af nedenstående historie.... S.S. Politician The Politician was a cargo ship rather than a person. The s.s. Politician incident became the basis for Compton Mackenzie's book Whisky Galore (Galore is itself derived from the Gaelic for enough). In 1941 the ship ran ashore north of Eriskay near the little island of Calvay - it carried 20,000 cases of whisky. The Islanders and the Customs and Excise department took different views of what should be the fate of these bottles - even now, when houses are being extended, there are finds of 'Polly bottles' hidden from the authorities by being buried in the peat. The only local pub is called "Am Politician".
