Arriving in the Hebrides….and Rhubarb

After an early morning flight from Edinburgh, we arrived in the Outer Hebrides at the Benbecula airport. This is the airport more in the middle of the Outer Hebrides, with the other two being Stornoway to the north and Barra to the south, both of which I used on my trip here last year. This location was better suited to renting a car for where we wanted to go.



We drove from Benbecula to Eriskay, the island on which we are staying – about an hour drive. This beach area on Eriskay is so beautiful and another visitor offered to get a shot of the two of us.



As you may know, one of my concerns was driving on the other side of the road here. Mary is doing most of the driving (and doing it very well!) but I am getting in a little. We really should warn the locals.


At the croft where we are staying are the beautiful Hebridean Sheep.


One of the special ones this year is bottle baby “Rhubarb” ( so named as Rhubarb was being picked when he arrived back at the house where he would get his start).

Here, he waits for that morning bottle Jonathan has brought.


OK, Rhubarb, you can have breakfast.


He obviously enjoyed it!


He then joins the flock to hang out with the “big boys” for the day, learning how to be a sheep.
