Walking about the Western Isles

July 2nd - 12th 2017

Took the van over to Harris & Lewis to re-do some lovely clifftop walks.  Even got up the highest hill they have "an Clisham" but it was touch and go with the clouds as to whether there would be a view.

The western isles just have the most amazing sands to stroll across at low tide as well.  Spotted 2 pairs of Golden Eagles and also a Sea Eagle plus lots of little brown jobs that I can't name.  And aquatically, we saw a dozen dolphins chasing fish and further out some Minke wales.  Missed having my sea boat though!

If you get across to Uig then there's also the malt whisky distillery at Red River with its interesting young spirit - you need try it.
