We “fell” over this castle on our last trip out and about. Didn’t even know about it until we drove past it, changed our plans and spend a morning walking the grounds and visited the great cafe, erm, yes there was cake.
There is a interesting story to this – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lowther_Castle
Day Six: “Solitude”The state of being alone, or a lonely and uninhabited place.
I need to find the correct quote. A French explore/sailor wrote a book, years ago, where one part he talked about being alone. He said that, he felt more alone on the Metro in the Paris rush hour. Compared to being on his boat alone in the middle of the ocean.
This I can totally relate to. The more remote I am, the more I feel at peace, relaxed and funny enough feel like I’m with my friends. Like here walking all alone, ok Peli is with me, on the Farewell Spit on the South Island of NZ.
Photography: Developing Your Eye I
If you should find yourself lost on Isle of Lewis or want to. You can’t do wrong with staying at Corncrake Holiday Cottage. We spend a brilliant week there few months back. Beach, walks, chill, views and nearly totally of the beaten track and stunning sunsets.
On Uig bay on Isle of Lewis you are spoiled with stunning sunsets.
I should ride more, I have become lazy over the last half year. Though, I managed to ride a few times in Scotland this year.
This photo is taken in the South Locks area of Isle of Lewis.
Stunning bit of the world.
