Scotland: From Tarbert to Scalpay

Isle of Harris, Outer Hebrides, Scotland
June 26, 2012
I snapped this shot from the window of a moving van on the way back from Scalpay. I guess I shouldn't obsess with perfect shot taking conditions when I can take decent shots like this one. Heck, this one was an afterthought. I liked the look of the building in the foreground and only managed to capture an image after we had passed it. Turns out, it was a great vantage point since you get a nice view of the winding road through the rocky hills of Harris.
Scalpay, or Sgalpaigh na Hearadh (Scalpay of Harris) is a tiny island close to where the ferry lands in nearby Tarbert. It is well worth a visit, stay tuned for more pics of our hike to an abandoned lighthouse on Scalpay, on of the highlights of our trip!
