Tour of the Western Isles: Harris – sorting out some photos

Inside of Rodel Church at the southern end of Harris

Time this evening to sort out a few more photos taken during our tour of the Hebrides in early August. These are all from the southern part of Harris – staggeringly beautiful. The east coast is all rocky land with small sea inlets, while the west has some gloriously white sandy beaches.

This dog wanted to play ball with anyone visiting the church
