Photographer's Note

Returning down the west coast we come to the hamlet of Baile an Truiseil where, a few hundred yards off the main road, lies the standing stone known as Clach an Truiseil. At nearly 6 metres high this is the tallest standing stone in Scotland and a good example of how, in centuries past, these stones were not treated with the same reverence we give them nowadays. The stone lies almost in the middle of a cart track with a fenced croft a few feet on one side and the wall of a house garden close to the other side. In this rather incongruous position it is difficult to do photographic justice to this wonderful stone so this shot is presented merely as a record of one of the many features on Lewis that inspire awe and wonder.


This a part of a series exploring The Outer Hebrides off the North West coast of Scotland. Some photographs of lesser quality may be included for sake of the travelogue - forgive me! Prints are available of selected photographs from my website. Please see my profile for details.
