Port of Ness
A gray and misty day walking into Port of Ness, Lewis. Port of Ness is the northern-most village on the island of Lewis, and
has a post
office, a restaurant and a harbor.
An old, abandoned cottage in Port of Ness. Many crofters move into newer homes built on their properties and leave the old
crumble. It is interesting to see the generations of houses on the land as people have moved from black houses to concrete,
more modern houses.
A wave crashing on the beach at Port of Ness. The water at the beach is a beautiful blue-green color that is absolutely specacular
the sun shines on it. For this photograph, I use a longer shutter speed so I could capture the motion of the wave.
Me and my Dad at the Cairn. As you walk south from the Butt of Lewis towards Eoropie, you go through a gate and walk through
ground before reaching this spot on a point overlooking the ocean and the northern beach at Eoropie. It is about 20 minute
walk from the lighthouse.
The lighthouse at the Butt of Lewis. Built in 1862, it was manned by a lighthouse keeper until 1998, when it was fully automated.
old residence buildings were recently repainted and the council is trying to figure out what to do with them. My vote is for
a tea room with hot tea
and buttery scones.
Pink Sea Thrift on the cliffs at the Butt of Lewis. This flower was in full bloom when I arrived in Lewis. It grows primarily
machair near the shoreline (rather than in boggy ground) and is a beautiful light pink color.
White pony at Moven Art Gallery in Barvas, Lewis. Morven Gallery is one of my favorite art galleries on the island. They
art by local artists, as well as a lovely tea room where you can get tea, coffee and different cakes and pies.
Beach at Dal Beg, Lewis. One of my favorite beaches in Lewis, this little jewel is tucked away down a small road off the
main road and
is usually deserted. There is a small white cottage at the end of the raod, and a beautiful small loch just beyond the beach
that is filled with water
lillies in the summer time.
An abandoned house in Cromore, in South Lochs, Lewis. This is a beautiful small community nestled amongst small hills and
both fresh and
sea lochs. Loch Cromore has a dun (fort) on a small island, Dun Cromore.
Edinburgh Castle in Edinburgh, Scotland. This beautiful castle sits at the center of the city and is where Mary Queen of
birth to James VI in 1566. Later, in 1745, Bonnie Prince Charlie tried to take the castle from King George II, but failed.
Now it is a major tourist
attraction and the site of the Military Tattoo.
