You wouldn't believe it was Scotland looking at the Isle of Lewis and Harris. Situated on the northwestern edge of the Outer Hebrides, the terrain is rocky with plenty of vast sandy beaches. Lewis and Harris are actually one large island, though often referred to as two. We stayed on Harris, the southern end, most famous for its tweed.
The highlight of the trip was our stay at a self-catering accommodation. It is a beautifully designed cottage which faces west towards what was once thought to be the edge of the world. We spent the nights relaxing in front of a fire while watching the sun set over the sound.
