We are beginning to plan out next trip to the Isle of Harris. The cottage has been booked for the last week in June. This will be the third time we have been there in twelve months.
It is a magical island with three distinct sections. There is the west coast and its fabulous beaches, the northern mountains and the eastern bays area, which has been described as a lunar landscape but is actually full of coves and abandoned cottages. Anyway we plan to get a few additional shots to those that featured in our first eBook. We also need to put the finishing touches to volume two currently in production.
This image of Northton Beach we are working with for the cover of volume two.
The first of two beaches at Northton points the way to Ceapabhal – the hill seen from along the west coast of the Island. This is the most easily accessible beach. A drive through the village, past the wonderful MacGilvery Centre (actually now an excellent cafe with local wildlife information on the tables) takes you to a road end on the beach.

We will share our favourite spots along the way but please let us know if there is somewhere you would like us to photograph on the Island.
