Unless you have been somewhere so remote, it is difficult to imagine. Before I flew to the Hebrides that year I had decided I must travel to the end of this road that I had seen in Google Earth and take a photo. I recommend you look at the map to see how remote this is! If you need fire services, an ambulance or school look how far it is to the next wee town! But the views are spectacular and it is perfectly calm on a day like this.
Location: Loch Amhlasaraigh, near Lochportain and Hoebeg, North Uist, Scotland, UK. Taken from the single-track road between Lochportain and Hoebeg. This view is out over Loch Amhlasaraigh, a sea loch in the isolated north-east of Norh Uist. The tide is out showing the rusty coloured seaweed on the rocky shores.
