29th of September

Just getting down to posting some pics from over the summer. In July we went for a few days to the Outer Hebrides, after a gig I had up in Ullapool. We stayed near this seafood plant for a couple of nights on the Island of Grimsay. A seared scallop on top of a slice of famous Stornaway black pudding is to die for…
I was very taken with the Machair, which is a strip of very fertile land along the western side of the chain of islands. The sandy soil has a very high shell content and was traditionally the  breadbasket of the Hebrides. It’s famous for its wild flowers…
We got as far down as Eriskay famous as the island in Whisky Galore. We were advised to seek out the ponies that live wild on the island. Sandy was the first to spot them. That’s the Cuilins of Skye in the background.
Beth chooses a couple she wants to take home..
