More colours and memories of Harris, look forward to returning. #lovetheouterhebrides #isleoflewisandharris @isleofharrisdistillers #scottishislandlife #scottishislands
Some parts of Scotland just don't look right with a blue sky background.
This photo never gets old! Even the local coos can't resist an afternoon on this Hebridean beach 😍 Vatersay is connected to Barra by a causeway, so I tackled the hilly cycle over to the island in July 2015 and was absolutely gobsmacked by the beauty of the beaches. These cute cows were just an added bonus!

Have you heard the news? @lonelyplanet revealed their list of must-visit destinations for 2019 today, and the Highlands and Islands were one of their top 10 regions! It seems we’re not the only ones who #lovetheouterhebrides 💙 (And thanks to @danieljtoal for this stunning shot of Luskentyre!)
40 mph winds & 18ft waves today on the Outer Hebrides. So what better way to spend the day than embracing the wild energy of this island and jumping in the water. It makes me feel so alive! Today I had a seal watching me from a distance - I wonder what he was thinking! Probably laughing to himself... . . . . . #wildswim #wildswimming #outdoorswimming #seaswimming #openwaterswimming #cldwaterswimming #wonderfulwildwomen #outdoorwomwn #womeninadventure #earlymorningswim #wildswimminguk #wildswimmingscotland #outdoorswimmingsociety #coldwaterswimming #openwaterswimmingpassion #healthandwellbeing #healthybodyhealthymind #mindfulnessmeditation #calmmind #findpeace #isleoflewis #outerhebrides #nikon #nikonphotography #lovetheouterhebrides #alotusrises #womensswimmingcollective #capturecalmac #getoutgirl #OutandAboutScotland
Gone Fishing #pier #rope #fishing #storyoffisherman #scalpay #scalpayshellfish #outerhebrides #lovetheouterhebrides #loveouterhebrides #monochomephotography #monochrome #monochromatic #photography #idiotslanternphotography Part if an interview with Alasdair MacLeod (AML), Taigh a’ Chnuic, Scalpay. My heart was always here.  Even while I was away…the years I was away…my heart was in Scalpay and in a way my heart was in the fishing.  Just at that time…that was the time when people started to get money from the Highland Development Board and the Remembrance came…and the man who got the Remembrance was a crewman on my brother Iain’s boat…and after that one called the Estralitacame...the Estralita that Murdo had…you spoke to Murdo recently…well he got the Estralita and he was also a crewman on Iain’s boat and when Murdo left and bought the Estralita and parted with Iain I went in his place on the Venture…in 1961…and I was there until we gave it up. We made our living from the herring.  I told this [story] often…when I went out that year…just around about this time…the end of August or about that time.  It was customary to divide the money three times a year.  They didn’t share it every week or every fortnight at all.  They shared the money at New Year, at the time of the Spring Communion and at the time of the Autumn Communion.  And I went out and the Autumn Communion had passed and when the money was shared at New Year, I had £13 and three sacks of potatoes.
🐚.... the land of peaceful beaches, white sand & turquoise sea .... where you can experience four seasons of weather in one hour ...... and forget time for a weekend ...... 💙 #lovetheouterhebrides #lovetheouterhebrides #lewis #beachlife #sandandsea #andrelax #timetobreathe #r &r

The story is about a little wave, bobbing along in the ocean, having a grand old time. He’s enjoying the wind and the fresh air — until he notices the other waves in front of him, crashing against the shore. “ “‘My God, this is terrible,’ the wave says ‘Look what’s going to happen to me!'” “Then along comes another wave. It sees the first wave, looking grim, and it says to him, ‘Why do you look so sad?’ “ “The first wave says, ‘You don’t understand! We’re all going to crash! All of us waves are going to be nothing! Isn’t it terrible?’ “ “The second wave says, ‘No, you don’t understand. You’re not a wave, you’re part of the ocean.’ “ I smile. Morrie closes his eyes again. “Part of the ocean,” he says. “Part of the ocean.” I watch him breathe, in and out, in and out. – Tuesdays with Morrie.

Beneath a glowering sky, a lone shieling on the Pentland Moor stands testament to a way of life no longer led on our islands, when families spent the summer months on the moors in these dwellings, to care for their cattle and sheep in the summer pastures. #moorland #cloudscape

I’ve had an absolute blast at #Wildscreen this week, met so many inspiring filmmakers, photographers and scientists, and seen a whole host of incredible films, it’s been a wonderful event to be part of. Last night’s #PandaAwards were the perfect end to the week, a celebration of all the incredible films (and photo stories!) from the last two years, I think it’s safe to say that the future of wildlife filmmaking is looking very bright indeed! 🐼🎥🌍✨ (Photo from another ridiculously beautiful evening on the Isle of Benbecula)

Puffin. To see puffins flying over the sea is to truly witness how hard nature is.... away from lovey dovey ground pics, their rapid rate of wing beats and 30km fishing sojourns show what a hard life they have to feed the pufflings. #instagram #birds #nature #puffin #flying #lovetheouterhebrides #scotland #scotlandisnow #outerhebrides #lewis #highlandcollective #ig_scotland @gordy_maclean #stornowayseafari

The Galtachan. Part of the Shiant Isles, native territory of “ The Blue Men of the Minch” other worldly sea sprites. They appear to ships and speak two lines of poetry in Gaelic... if the Master of the ship can’t finish off the last two lines..... bad luck ensues. #insta #igscotland #visitscotland #scotland #scotland_greatshots #instagram #lovetheouterhebrides #seascape #sea #islands @gordy_maclean
