Saturday 5 June

A very nice bright day, although not fully sunny. A bit of cloud about, a spot or two of rain as we went up the road through the village of Barvas. Temperature around 14C, with a high of 16C in late morning.

After lunch, it was up the road to Ness (North Lewis) to start with. A distance of 25 miles, which is commonly covered in an hour. The object of the trip, lunch at the Eoropie Tearoom, was thwarted as the Tearoom was closed whilst the owners find a buyer.

We duly diverted to Port of Ness, where a cup of tea and a couple of biscuits awaited. First though, we went to the Butt of Lewis, just over a mile from Eoropie (pronounce Yo-ropee).

Port of Ness

A drive of about 37 miles then took us to the Callanish Stones and attendant wildlife.

after which the Pentland Road was our route back to Stornoway. Some strange objects along there.
