Today proved a fantastic experience with visits to a wide range of sites including:
-The famous Callanish Standing Stones, one of Europe’s top prehistoric sites.
-Carloway Iron Age Broch, a high status building built some 2000 years ago.
-Gearranan Blackhouse Village.This is a traditional stone and thatch village occupied until the 1970s.
-Unusual whalebone arch fronting a private house.
-Steinacleit prehistoric stone circles.
-Norse Mill and Kiln.
-Clach An Trushal, a huge, solo prehistoric standing stone perhaps 18 feet in height.
-Port of Ness, a charming harbour shimmering in the evening sunshine.
-Ness Lighthouse (in stunning location).
-Dun Eistean, remains of historic fort.
-The Blackhouse Museum, a well presented traditional Lewis stone and thatched house set in a crofting community.

Weather proved benevolent for once with a reasonable amount of sunshine and no rain.

Evening rounded off with dinner at top seafood restaurant,’Sulair’.

A long but satisfying day-we returned to our Tarbert hotel at 1015pm.

Off to Skye tomorrow. Watch out for more updates!
