Geo-Trips :: A short walk on South Harris

Outer Hebrides (Na h-Eileanan an Iar) [13]

A walk from Loch Fionnsabhagh, Sun, 6 Jun 2010 by David Purchase

preceding legThis trip is part of a series.next 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 fairly short walk gave me my 9th and 10th Firsts.
