Ferry to the Outer Hebrides

Forsooth Miss Haversham, these lands do give me the vapours.  Its taken too long to reach the Outer Hebrides, and oh boy it was worth it. Caledonian MacBrayne (CalMac) runs many ferries to Scotland’s Outer and Inner Hebrides. The Outer Hebrides are a collection of 100 islands off Scotland’s north west coast of which only 15 are inhabited. I visited in November 2016 to tour, camp and photograph the views and detail of Harris and Lewis in the north.  I drove up to Uig on Skye for the ferry to Tarbert which lies on Harris just south of Lewis. Confusingly they are different regions of the largest island. Harris is very rocky with many hills while Lewis is more gentle, lower level and marshy.

I have visited a few Formula 1 Grand Prix, but this was my first British GP and lasted five days.  What a spectacle of cars. What an audible experience. One hundred and forty thousand vocal fans pushing-on their driver at this old military airfield. This is the first selection from Thursday’s F2 practice sessions.
