A Lovely Drive

Our friends, Jonathan and Denise, took us for a very nice drive through South and North Uist. There is so much to see here but you have to know where to look. Hence, the valuable expertise of the locals!

We visited a local mill, Uist Mill, and looked at what they have been producing since Denise and I visited them a couple years ago when they were not fully up and running.

Then we just explored! The landscape was beautiful, even in the rain.

I love looking at all the old stone houses, some now not in use as homes but some may still be a part of the farm, in use for storage. Often built on rises.

The big treat, however, and the purpose of all my trips, is to see the sheep. But, an added treat this time, red deer!

Wait, what is THIS sheep doing here?! Did not expect to see a Herdwick!

This area is just full of beautiful sheep! Here are some Cheviots and Scottish Blackface. Still looking for more. Yes, a very lovely drive!
