My 3rd time staying here. Nice views of the new wind turbines.

    There's a new access road to the Aketil site a few hundred yards from here. Reckon I'll have a wander over there soon. Thank you for your comments. Not sure about your Neist Point one though☺; seriously dangerous rocks to be clambering over. I took a daft risk and only came away with a good soaking; but oh-so-easy being swept away!

    Like the mono. The diagonals with alternating bands of light and dark makes for a strong composition. Excellent tonal range.

    Thanks. Just a different angle. I liked the sign. Gate is always open when I've been up there, so the sheep are welcome to come and munch the overgrown front garden.

    I saw the turbine sign and went up the slip road to the gates. There is a huge stlie there as well. I was too scared to go beyond the gates. LOL
    At the end of the Upper Edinbane road there is a track up to the new turbines. Again too scared.
    I don't climb down too far at Neist Point. I am no climber and don't have a great head for heights. I just like to potter around safely.

    Wise! I know this area well. I'll be off over said stile tomorrow - weather permitting. Enercon's vans are still running around, not sure which site they're working, but if anything's said I'll just put my bumpkin or tourist head on. Lol! ☺

    Lovely, we have this cottage booked next month and are really looking forward to it, had a trip to Skye in 2010 and stayed in Sleat area, been desperate to return since and it cant come around quick enough :)

    It's a great place to stay. So quiet you can hear a pin drop. Very peaceful sitting out on the bench with a cup of tea. Just perfect.

    I hope you enjoy your trip and I'll keep a look out for your photos. I'll be travelling around Harris next month as well.

    Best wishes,
