We have not allowed the dull weather to stop us and have continued with our little adventures around the Island. We actually discovered a single track road about 200 yards away from our little cottage that leads right down to the machair a Gaelic word meaning fertile low lying grassy plain. Despite how dull and overcast is was still a delight to wander.
The car won't go much further so its time for a stroll.
Not sure who the sheiling belongs to but what an amazing view. The stonework was a real delight to see.
There are signs of crofting life and particularly sheep all around. We were trying to work out where our little cottage was but we couldn't see it has it sits in a dip behind the hill from the machair. This is why we haven't a sea view unless you count standing on your tip toes from an attic window.
Hope you enjoyed the little tour, I took some photos of the wildflowers which I will share on another post. I also have a couple of crochet finishes to share and of course a couple of new starts. Hope you are not wilting in the heat. Take care.
See you soon.
