Photographer's Note

Most of the superb beaches in The Outer Hebrides are on the Atlantic west coast with the east coast being generally very rocky. The one exception is the area immediately north of Stornoway known as Back. Here a road passes through habitation and past many fine beaches until it reaches Port Geiraha (Port Garry) with its beach Traigh Ghearadha and the adjoining beach of Traigh Mhor. Together they make a fine stretch of glorious sand two miles long and looking across to the far north of the Scottish mainland. This glorious and isolated beach is Traigh Ghearadha (Tra-ee Garry) where you can stand and watch the ocean or explore the beach in silence save for the pounding of the waves.


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.
