Those who haven't yet experienced the Gneiss of the Outer Hebrides sea cliffs, might be forgiven for wondering why Scottish climbers drive past all of the highland cliffs and jump on a ferry to the furthest corner of the UK? Well, yeah the rock is beautiful stuff, but thats not all. Blogs like Silversprite illuminate some of the other attractions on show. I've never seen beaches elsewhere on earth that even come close. Hey and I'm going there in 2 weeks!!!
The landscape of Lewis and Harris would leave a mark on anyone I think. I can't describe it really. All I can say is - everything just seems richer, colours, the rock texture; everything.
