In mid September 2014 we left home and headed to the Outer Hebrides. We'd talked about doing this trip for years and finally it was happening.
It took all day Saturday to reach our overnight stop at Fort William before Sunday mornings drive to Skye to catch the early afternoon ferry to Tarbert, Harris.
Upon docking at Tarbert we had a 20 min drive across the Island and arrived at Cuckoo Cottage, our home for two weeks on Luskentrye beach, late Sunday afternoon. We unpacked and went for a walk on the most spectacular and deserted beach I'd ever stepped foot on. It was breathtaking.
The first week blessed us with amazing mid September weather - the second brought us high winds and, as you would expect, huge waves pounding the Western side of the Island. It really was the best of both worlds for photography.
We travelled lots, covering the North & South of Harris, Lewis and North Uist, but it was the Western side of South Harris that I enjoyed the most - especially in the second week with the Atlantic crashing onto the rocks and beaches.
The last photographs I took on the trip were on the beach at Bagh Steinigidh, my favourite location, with the waves crashing, the rain sweeping in from sea and not another person to be seen. It was bliss.
