 Having set up for this shot close to The Prison on the Quiraing at the northern end of the Isle of Skye two walkers made their way along the track and paused to admire the Trotternish Ridge before continuing on their way.

Outer Hebrides, Isle of Harris, Glen Sgaladail 
 Driving north east across the Isle of Harris towards the Isle of Lewis you pass Glen Sgaladail. The Isles of Harris and Lewis have a reputation for fierce winds, the night prior to capturing this frame had given me some experience of just how strong these winds can be. Things were so bad I had needed to park my motor home tight up against the local Scaladale Residential Centre for some protection in order to avoid the risk of being blown over. File 7307

Outer Hebrides, Isle of Harris, Maibhaigh 
 Heading south out of Tarbert you get the first small taste of what is often described as the lunar landscape of south east Harris. This un-named Loch in front of Cnoc Mor needed two long visits to offer up any hope of even a hint of light. This is an area of the Isle of Harris that I know I'll have to return to several times.

Outer Hebrides, St Kilda Archipelago, Hirta 
 Main Street on the island of Hirta, in the St. Kilda Archipelago. Often referred to as St. Kilda this was the only island of the archipelago that was occupied continuously since prehistoric times. 
Scattered around the area of Village Bay are the Cleats or "cleitean", seen here behind the houses. Cleats are dome-shaped structures which are constructed of flat boulders capped with turf. This construction allows the wind to pass through the cavities in the wall while keeping the rain out. Cleats were used by the St. Kildans. They had a multitude of uses including, storing peat, preserved sea birds, eggs, hay, nets, corn and manure. They also acted as shelter for the lambs in winter.
The date of origin of the Cleat is unknown, they were though in continuous use from prehistoric times until the evacuation of St Kilda in 1930. File 6386
