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.
June 2 saw a visit to two uninhabited islands, Pabbay and Scarp. This trip shows Pabbay and the next one Scarp. Obviously boat rides were involved, but all the photos on this trip were taken on land.
