The Isle of Harris landscape photography

Landscape, Scottish Islands

After a glorious week on the Isle of Harris, my intention had been to leave after my last wedding. However, I had failed to appreciate it was the school holidays and there had just been a large wedding on the island, leading to full ferries on Saturday. It was no hardship to accept that I needed to stay an extra day!

With another forecast of sunshine, it felt deliciously indulgent to spend the day just wandering, going with whatever felt right at the time.  But that was exactly what I spent the day doing. Driving from Rodel towards Luskentyre, Seilebost caught my eye so I took a walk on quiet possibly the most photographed view on the Hebrides. I walked a little way up Beinn Luskentyre again and ended up on Scarista in the early evening. After a fabulous day photographing views, hills and beaches, I decided some fish and chips were called for. So I headed to the Butty Bus and it was quite possibly the best tasting meal I had eaten in a while - fresh air and the outdoors does that!

I have just released a brand new retreat to the Isle of Harris for Nov 2019 if you'd like to see these scenes for yourself!
