December 17th 2019 - Why go abroad for a beach holiday in the winter sun, when you are only a short hop away from world class, deserted beaches in the Western Isles?
Traigh Mor Beach (pictured) is absolutely stunning and ranks amongst some of the very best beaches in the Outer Hebrides. I like to find a peaceful corner in the sand dunes overlooking the beach. From here I can watch the shore birds wading at the waters edge. Out at sea, lines of gannets and gliding fulmars can be seen plying their trade.
You can not beat this beach for a mind and soul re-set.
So the next sunny winters day will find me in among the Dunes, tucked in out of the gentle breeze, looking at the waves breaking along the shore and staring out to the horizon, imagining the sailing boats of the 1800's transporting emmigrants over to Canada (which is just out of sight!).
Come and join me in 2020
