Artist's Description

This thatched stone house and byre must be the most photographed house on North Uist (Uibhst a Tuath). Situated overlooking Vallay Beach (Tràigh Bhalaigh) an amazing sandy bay. Many hundreds of these simple old stone houses stand abandoned throughout the Isles. Some are now being renovated – at considerable expense – often as holiday homes with all mod cons. This does not seem to be an original “blackhouses” which had no chimneys or large windows and were built without mortar but rather in a cottar’s whitehouse with thatched roof. Nevertheless should date back into the 19th century or before.

Nikon D200, Sigma 18-200mm. Postpro in CS4 incl. NikColorEfex polarisation filter.
Location: Sollas / Macleite, Vallay bay, on the A865 from Clachan to Lochmaddy. North Uist, Scotland, UK. 57° 38’ 19.75" N 7° 22’ 28.69" W
