Trawling Flickr, looking for pictures of the Outer Hebrides, is a particularly pleasant activity. Do it for an hour or so and there's an irresistable urge to get on the next passing bus and go to a few of these places. I must get better organised this coming year. Here's two pictures each of Barra in the south, and Lewis in the north.
Here's Halaman Bay in Barra, picture by Paddimir:
Also in Barra, here's Stoung Mor. This picture is by Viche (a librarian, which is cool), who noted that here she "watched dolphins jump and play in the water":
Now zipping up to Lewis (possible on the same day if you time the two ferry connections right), we have a picture of the Callanish Stones by Schemie Radge:
And finally, a "light sabre" picture from the excellent Bluewave (every picture of his is superb) of a crofter and his sheep:
By the way, feel free to pass on the webbie address of this blog (www.silversprite.com) to anyone you think may be interested in pictures of the Outer Hebrides.
