Machair at Huisinis
Machair is a particular type of grassland on sand in the Hebrides. It is very fertile, and in spring and early summer is thick with a variety of wild flowers. It also makes good farmland, and is widely cultivated. The coast of the island of Scarp is at extreme left, and the hills of West Lewis are in the distance.
