Hebrides and home

Some enjoyable family time recently, but still managed to get out into the hills as much as possible. We spent some time on Lewis and Harris in the incomparable Outer Hebrides of Scotland. Great beaches, views, wildlife and mountains----what more can one ask for? The weather was pretty good too! We came back home via Skye, Glen Coe and Fort William to complete a lovely round trip.
