Bunavoneader Whaling Station ๐Ÿ˜”๐Ÿ‹ Ive always been an activist for those lovely creatures ๐Ÿณ but this is part of history and northern/Norse tradition ... Set up in the early 1900's the station was run by a Norwegian company. In the early 1920's it was bought over by Lord Leverhulme until 1929 when it closed. It reopened for a brief period in the 1950's. Along the shore are the remains of a dock, against which the whaling-pursuit ships moored while the catch was hauled up the slipway. Although whaling was practiced throughout the North Atlantic, this is now the most intact example of a whaling station in the northern hemisphere. #whalingstation #bunavoneader #isleofharris #outerhebrides #outstandingscotland #westernisles #lewisandharris #scotlandsbeauty #scotspirit #scotlandexplore #scotlandsites #historicscotland #travel #traveling #travelgram #landscape #lovescotland #landscape_lovers #igtravel #ukpotd #landscape_captures #landscapephotography #scotland_insta #history #instagood #instadaily #santastictravels

Fyrish Monument built in 1782 on Fyrish Hill (Cnoc Fhaoighris) near Alness, Easter Ross, on the orders of Sir Hector Munro, 8th of Novar, a native lord of the area who had served in India as a general. As the local population were being cleared off the land they had worked for centuries by the Lords of the Land, survival was a problem and so it was built to keep the locals in labour. It represents the Gate of Negapatam, a port in Madras, India, which General Munro took for the British in 1781. I ๐Ÿ’™ the place and the fantastic view over the Cromarty Firth and beyond ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ณ๓ ฃ๓ ด๓ ฟ #fyrishmonument #scotland #scottish #scotspirit #scenicbritain #cromartyfirth #scotlandlover #scotlandsbeauty #igscotland #highlands #hiddenscotland #highlandcollective #unlimitedscotland #outstandingscotland #cloudporn #visitscotland #womenwhotravel #womenwhoexplore #getoutside #womenwhohike #travel #my_natural_feature #traveling #travelgram #instagood #instadaily #santastictravels
Lews Castle in Stornoway hosts a few of the famous chessmen ๐Ÿคด ๐Ÿ‘ธ The Lewis chessmen (Fir-Tร ilisg) or Uig chessmen are named after the bay where they were discovered in 1831. They are a group of distinctive 12th-century chess pieces, along with other gaming pieces, most of which are carved from walrus ivory with a few made of whale teeth. ๐Ÿ‹ Their true origin has not yet been confirmed with some scientists believe Trondheim in Norway ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ด could be a place whereas others suggest different Nordic countries... #lewischessmen #isleoflewis #lewisandharris #westernisles #outerhebrides #outstandingscotland #historicscotland #scotland #scotspirit #scotlandlover #castle #nature #naturephotography #castles_oftheworld #scotlandsbeauty #explore_scotland #travel #traveling #travelgram #lewscastle #naturalretreats #ig_photooftheday #igscotland #instagood #instadaily #stornoway #santastictravels

Restored blackhouse in Garenin or rather Na Gearrannan on the Isle of Lewis, Outer Hebrides ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ณ๓ ฃ๓ ด๓ ฟ Today it is a crofting township with a population of about 80 people. Most famous for the Blackhouse Village, which consists of 9 restored traditional thatched cottages, and definitely worth visiting - despite the steady influx of tourists. The village is found at the end of the Garenin road beside the village bay. These houses were lived in till 1974 and were the last group of blackhouses to be inhabited in the Western Isles. #blackhouse #gearrannan #historicscotland #history #scotland #outerhebrides #westernisles #lewisandharris #scotspirit #scotlandlover #loveouterhebrides #scotlandexplore #scotlandsbeauty #scotlandsites #travelgram #explore_britain #explore_scotland #travel #traveling #travelphotography #womenwhotravel #visitscotland #visitouterhebrides #womenwhoexplore #ig_photooftheday #ig_scotland #instadaily #instagood #santastictravels
