CYCLING SOUTH HARRIS
Scarastaveg, Horgabost and Seilebost are places I cycled past today. The names sound Scandinavian but they all have wide sandy beaches and are on the west coast of the Isle of Harris in the Outer Hebrides. The dunes behind the beaches are covered in fragile wild flower grassland known locally as machair. The east coast is granite where the sea goes in and out with little inlets and lochans behind. Man has made little impression on this landscape. A circular tour is 50 miles and these are a few images of the ride.
