Lets have a trip to another country for a change, shall we? Over the border into - na Hearadh (Harris). Driving into those mountains that we look towards everyday - getting up close and personal to the Cailleach na Mointeach, or The Sleeping Beauty as she is also known, as we head South through Lewis.
Into Harris now, climbing up the mountainous road, that always reminds me of driving around Crete - especially on a day like this. Lets stop here and take in the view up to the head of Loch Seaforth.
Another stop before we begin our descent into Tarbert. Perhaps a better view of this can be seen in the previous post.
Moving along the road now - yellow snow poles to guide our way.
And then we arrive in the harbour village of Tarbert. Stopping in at the Harris Tweed shop there.
The MV Herbrides is just arriving from Uig in Skye with it's load of passengers. It looks for all the world as if it is going to swallow that lovely red and white motor launch.
The sea is so calm and blue today - everything is indeed in harmony.
Turning for home now, we stop just by Bunavoneadar to admire this stunning view, before heading into the mountain pass.
Looking back the way from a sunken parking spot, gives us a different view of the mountains.
and we take a moment to enjoy the splashing of this burn as it runs down the hillside.
before we follow the yellow poles towards home again.
