Well it was a little disappointing that our adventure in the Scottish Hebrides didn’t go anything like our plan. We had intended to spend a couple of weeks on anchor exploring all the little nooks and crannies, lochs & mountains along the east coast (of which there are hundreds), but the weather was pulling rank and reminding us it was boss (and that winter is quickly approaching).
So we are now in Stornaway and have hired a car for two days to drive south and explore via road all the little nooks and crannies along the coast that would make perfect anchoring spots for a yacht – and they were stunning such a shame we couldn’t get Red Roo there – sigh!
The slideshow below highlights what we saw. Including the Calanais Standing Stones (yes more stone circles!), many local statues, harris tweed weaver, black houses, churches and many lovely views.
