Visit to Tolsta Chaolais

It was a brilliantly sunny day today, which saw the mercury up to 15C and me out and about in the island. At 2.30pm, I joined the bus to Carloway and 45 minutes later I was dropped off at the road-end at Tolsta Chaolais. This is a small village, off the main road, about 2 miles south of Carloway on the west coast of the island. It has its own small graveyard, and after a 40 minute walk and a wee bit of detective work, I managed to locate it near the coast. TC is situated in a valley beside its own loch, see pictures.

  1. What beautiful places you get to visit.
    The pic of the graveyard is like out of a travel brochure.
    Hello kitty....

  2. I so agree with Connie. It so fabulous to be able to take off & see such wonderful places. I like to walk through cemetaries in other towns. They are full of such history & stories. I wonder if they were good people. If they were happy people. If the child died of an illness. Guess that's why I like biographies too. :) Thanks for sharing the photos. Cute one of the cat.
