After a fascinating time on the Isle of Harris, we came south yesterday via North Uist and Benbecula to South Uist. And what a contrast it is. As you can see from the picture above, it is much flatter. There is a mountainous region to the east of the island (you can just about see the peaks in the distance), but as you can see from the map below, it is low-lying, fertile marshland in the west where we are staying.
We have wonderful access to inlets and estuaries just a short walk from our property. This gives us views all my very favourite kinds of birds – oystercatchers, curlew, lapwing and a host of other waders.
I am looking forward to writing more substantive posts about all of this and our previous adventures. Meanwhile, here is a picture of a very happy Hub taken while we were out birdwatching earlier today. 🙂
