Never on a Sunday; or a Monday for that matter! (Final Part)

29 Nov

This series of posts has gone on for f…a…r too long.

On reflection, I would have been better compiling all the posts first, then releasing them at a rate of at least 2 a week.  Continuity would have been better served…and you, the reader, might have been given a bit more of a clue as to what was going on.

To bring the run of posts to a speedy end I’ve omitted a fair bit of content.  I’m tempted to re-write the whole story as a single, more concise, article…but that’s for another day.

Today I’ve posted a series of photographs from our final morning on the islands.  All the photos were taken on the island of Berneray with all but the last 2 taken on a beach on the east of the island.  The fantastic Hebridean colours came to the fore and we couldn’t have had a better walk for our last few hours on the Western Isles.

I hope you have enjoyed our travels and join us next year when hopefully we will visit a few more of Scotland’s fantastic islands.

It's a bit dull so far this morning but it's time for one last walk along one of those fantastic Hebridean beaches

Back to the beautiful, washed out, pastel shades.

The Fatdog abandoned her pull-toy in favour of chasing her ball.

I did rather worry what was attached to the other end!

"You talkin' to me?"

The beach appeared to be empty but we never lost the feeling that we were being watched.

"oh - oh!"

The sky started off grey but gradually improved.

There was a fair bit of rope on the beach.

This is a hostel...anybody fancy a visit?

The seals hang out on the rocks near the main part of the village...very considerate of them.

We left the seals and headed for the ferry at Lochmaddy on North Uist to take us back to Uig on Sky. It piddled down rain from about Portree all the way down to Kintail Lodge Hotel at the entrance to Glen Sheil...was never so glad that we'd booked a stop-over as it was a dismal night.
