Great photos Brian. Having just returned from 2.5 weeks at my house in the Scottish Higlands, your photos have confirmed the reason why we bought it. Now, if anyone would like to rent it as a base for ribbing just drop me an email for details (This advert is sponsored by the need for money !)

OK Just to bring this thread back up to the top again....
This is Castle Bay, Barra, Outer Hebrides.
Wonder why they call it Castle Bay???

and here is another.
When Alan Priddy and co. crossed the Atlantic for the first time (you must get their marvellous book!!), they came down the outside of Barra and tried to pass between Barra and Vatersay. Unfortunately, someone had come along and built a causeway between the two islands (in the middle of the night??) and closed off that option!!
