Geo-Trips :: A short walk at Rodel Harbour

Outer Hebrides (Na h-Eileanan an Iar) [2]

A walk from Rodel, Sun, 30 May 2010 by David Purchase

preceding legThis trip is part of a leg

In the first half of June 2010 I visited the Outer Hebrides. I had only recently joined Geograph, and so my photos were not always in an ideal order for a Geo-trip. But I knew enough to realise that I could get some Firsts!

The visit was broadly north to south, from Lewis to Barra, and so they are presented here as a series.

This first trip was actually in very late May. In the morning I had climbed Mealisval, and this afternoon was just a short walk near Rodel at the extreme south of Harris.

Click the blue circles to see a photograph taken from that spot and read further information about the location. The blue lines indicate the direction of view. There is also a slideshow of this trip. ( )
