I spent two days on the Uists this trip and although I have visited them before, I really fell in love with the place this time round. I cant really point to what it is about them. Certainly the people are brilliant, they all wave at you, they speak Gaelic, and they seem to get the sunglasses on at the slightest glimpse of sunlight. I think however it was a combination of the landscape, weather and general atmosphere of the place that I noticed more this time around.
The War Memorial on North Uist
Your never far from water.
Its a very panoramic landscape, with seemingly endless skies.
And the view from the roadside if you get the right light is magnificent.
