Shiant Islands
Shiant Islands
From the summit of Eilean an Taighe, a view north to Garbh Eilean. Eilean an Taighe is very grassy and provided good grazing as well as some arable land when the islands were inhabited. A third island, Eilean Mhuire is the most fertile, but I was unable to land due to sea conditions. The islands are now grazed by the crofters sheep from Lewis.
