The best part of 120 miles without much in the way of traffic and I did the whole journey from Strathpeffer to Perth without stopping. Would have been quite a scenic drive had it not been dark…

I’ve often heard it said you get four seasons in one day fairly frequently in the Outer Hebrides. Yesterday was no exception to this. Friday was a day of contrasts; rain in the morning and Sunshine in the afternoon.

Road Trip through Barra and Vatersay

Yesterday was a wet day in the Western Isles: Probably the one area of the UK where it hasn’t been hot and Sunny! I am enjoying being in a little pocket of the country with no mobile signal.

After a journey of 3 days I arrived yesterday evening on the Isle of Barra, in the Outer Hebrides.
