Today I took Anna to see the Butt of Lewis (the most Northerly point of Lewis), the Garenin Village Blackhouses, and the Standing Stones of Callanish. All of these are memorable works of man or nature and are worthy of a whole blog each. We also popped into the Morven Gallery for morning coffee and The Inn Between at North Shawbost for an excellent lunch. The weather was, generally speaking, very windy, cold and dull and wet with the very occasional burst of sun and frequent torrential rain. Not, on the whole, good weather for photography. So I decided, just so that I could turn this from a pure diary entry into something with a bit of fun attached, to show you something else that caught my eye on the road to Ness: painted stone penguins. Don't you just love a bit of rural fun?
