Tràigh Sheileboist on the Isle of Harris
Tràigh Sheileboist on the Isle of Harris
This idyllic view is of Tràigh Sheileboist beach surrounding the calm waters of Caolas Tharasaigh (Taransay Sound), with a spit of Taransay island itself just appearing on the left. In the mist beyond are the hills of North Harris some of which rise to over 700 metres. Taransay, an uninhabited island, was used by the BBC to film “Castaway” in 2000 LinkExternal link
