Visiting the Outer Hebrides involved four ferries - I was a bit worried about these as I'm a bad sea traveller but I needn't have worried as all the crossings were perfect. Even saw dolphins on one of the crossings which was a first for us.
We loved the empty roads and the wild flowers especially the 'machair', the flowers which grow on the low-lying areas next to the sea. The sand and crushed shells are blown onto the land and create the ideal conditions for this carpet of wild flowers. Another thing crossed off my bucket list!
Vatersay was once an island but is now reached by a causeway. White sands and wilderness - second off the list!
A bit of excitement! Watching the small plane landing and taking off from the airport beach on Barra. What more could you ask for! All this and the pleasure of meeting up with Annie and Niels in Ullapool - so nice to meet bloggers you've only seen in photos!
