Today we tour Harris starting with the beaches. We stop at only a few of the many beaches. A lot of the beaches can only be reached by hiking.

Driving along Fadhail Losgaintir.

Luskentyre Beach. There were people walking but no one sitting on the beach or in the water.

Macleod's Standing Stone stands to a height of 2.5 metres. To get to the stone you walk along a beautiful beach and up a grassy knoll.

From Macleod's stone looking down on Nisabost Beach.

At the bottom of the island Northton beach.

Now for a change of scenery. We've reached the bottom of the south end of the island and are going to drive north.
This is just past the small town of Rodel. No sand here.

St. Clement's Church in Rodel. It is a late fifteenth-century or early sixteenth-century church built for the Chiefs of the MacLeods of Harris. It is dedicated to Pope Clement I.

A view from the church looking inlaid.

Another view from the church, this time looking towards the water.

As we begin driving the scenery changes dramatically. I don't know how to describe it other than rocky. The photo doesn't do it justice. It was surreal.

We saw a surprising number of small towns and homes here. The road was of coarse 1 lane, very curvy with blind hills every where and the road usually had a curve after the blind hill.

The sea side looked was one would expect.

The inland side had the dramatic view.

As we were driving we noticed a fair number of telephone booths with telephones. Sometimes the booth would be beside a house, sometimes just out by the road. We even saw a few bus shelters, so I guess the bus runs out here.

Back on the main road another great view

I think this is back on the Lewis side.
