Outer Hebrides

The Outer Hebrides consist of several islands off the west coast of Scotland and the ones I visited were Harris and Lewis which is the lkargest island in Scotland. . I stayed in a self catering property overlooking a beautiful loch not far from Tarbert on the Isle of Harris. Most of Harris is very hilly whereas Lewis is comparatively flat. I think these islands are a must for any photographer, such beautiful landscapes with plenty of rugged features as well as the beauty of the beaches on Harris.

The trip involved a stop over on the way up and back in Glen Coe, to break the journey. I have therefore included a few images at the bottom taken in the Glen Coe area.
