Traigh Mhor mist and waves
Sat 7 Jan 2017
Another misty day with hardly any wind so we were surprised by the size of the waves crashing on to the beach. Taransay can just be made out on the right horizon.

If you had gone down to the beach today you wouldn't have seen very far...

After taking numerous photos of Ceapabhal from the beaches over the last couple of years we thought we would walk up it. On the lower slopes there is no obvious path and it was wet underfoot. Higher up there is a path which we used on our descent having not seen it as we ascended.
This is the view looking towards Taobh Tuath (Northton) from just below the summit. A bit of sunshine would have been nice to improve the visibility but we were able to see St Kilda out to the west in the middle of the Atlantic.

The Scholars Path
Mon 2 Jan 2017
Before the Golden Road was built the local children use to walk this route to school at Greosabhagh (Grosebay). We walked part of their route starting from near the Bays Cafe to just beyond the lochs in the photo and back.
This image shows a section of the path, still in good repair, as it passes Loch an Rothaid.

Traigh Scarasta XII
Sun 1 Jan 2017
A New Year's Day beach walk. With no access across the golf course to the north end of the beach we parked down at the south end and then walked the length of the beach. As we walked up the beach we got stunning views of the North Harris hills in the distance with a touch of snow. The rain hit us at the far end of the beach but the squall passed through and the sunshine returned.
This is the view looking down the beach to Ceapabhal.
