"Don't like the weather? Wait twenty minutes." - Scottish saying. I thought the bad weather would never end and I'd never get to see the beach on Benbecula that I'd dreamt about for weeks. Check out the beaches of the outer Hebrides!
We’d been on the road for almost two weeks, we’d had sun, rain, wind and every time we’d come close to one of the many giant beaches of the Hebrides in Scotland, the mist closed in, the rain came down and we got stranded in our tent.
Then we got to Benbecula (Beinn nam Fadhla), a little island between the larger islands of North and South Uist. It takes various trains, buses and ferries to get there, and that’s exactly how it should be.
The sun was out. The beach was massive. There was nobody else for miles around…so we did a little dance!
The Old Man of Storr An ancient adult-sized playground. The name of this monolithic rock formation on the Trotternish peninsula of the Isle of Skye means "Great Man" in Old Norse. It forms part of a series of gigantic basalt rock formations that leave a teeth-like silhouette on the horizon.
Callanish Stones What the ancients did before TV. This cromlech (Callanish I) in Callanais on the west coast of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides, dates from around 3000 BC and is the largest of a number of stone circles that dominate the surrounding landscape.
Lewis & Harris Remote, isolated and gorgeous. Lewis and Harris or Leòdhas agus na Hearadh in the Outer Hebrides is the largest island in Scotland. Lewis, to the north, has a relatively flat landscape and is home to the island's main(only) city(large town), Stornoway or Steòrnabhagh and also the five thousand-year-old megalithic monument at Calanais.
