Bliss, rain & storm in the Outer Hebrides

Unlike my usual touring mode this time we hired a camper van since we are way out of season, which implies nothing is open in areas as remote as Harris and Lewis.

We did a tour around South Harris, ventured around North Harris into Lewis stopping at standing stones, breathtakingly beautiful beaches, black houses and some very unique moonlike landscapes.

Yesterday, Sunday, we managed to have a pint in a pub before moving on to yet another chin dropping gorgeous beach east of Vatisker.

Sitting laptop on my knees, coffee in my hand starring at that beach with the rain making a soothing noise on the roof of the van. It is 8.45 am and barely daylight. A February day in Lewis! It is total bliss.

The weather has not been kind, but added to the wildness of this place and to created the background for some amazing photos. Let me share:
