The East Side of South Uist

My friends took me for a drive to see an area I had not yet seen – the east side of South Uist. How very different!

It was a very sunny day – even around 5 PM – and we caught the best light on the waters.

The tide was coming in so it was like driving over a river in spots, where the sea ends in a loch.

We saw Ormacleit Castle and the mountain Beinn Mhor, although I couldn’t capture the light and color here as I saw it.

A very fun surprise – two buddies: a Shetland Pony and a Clydesdale. This place is full of surprises!

Here you can see the dark area showing where the peats have been cut and a charming little footpath marked.

And, of course, no trip out for me would be complete without a sheep spotting. Here is what may be one of my favorites of the Scottish Blackface. But then, I have a few more to share!
