The first of the series of pictures I took on my trip to Arnol today is now my new header picture on this blog. Yes, it was that cold.
Arnol used to be a populous little place, but as you wander down the main streets, a series of abandoned blackhouses and ruined houses stare out from the roadside. It is not customary in the Hebrides to remove something that is no longer in use, whether that be a safe or a house. Houses whose occupants have passed away are also not touched.
The four snowmen stood outside a house in Barvas, 4 miles east of Arnol.
