Exploring the Outer Hebrides - Summer 2019

Route: Clisham (An Cliseam) direct route

Corbetts: Clisham

Date walked: 26/05/2019

So I'd never been to the Outer Hebrides but I was now living on Skye which meant easy access from Uig :). I'd entered the Heb 30 (3) event which is run any 3 of the 5 Island Half Marathons. I ran Stornoway first, which Polly & Theresa flew up from Glasgow to run. We walked up Clisham the evening before the race - great training! Benbecula & Skye would follow.

I couldn't run Harris and was injured for Barra however I've entered the 5 races this year. So in the summer of 2019 I explored the many Islands of the Outer Hebrides in-between running half marathons. I was absolutely gobsmacked at how beiytiful and abundant the beaches were! Not only beautiful but extremely quiet 8)

I visited all the usual hot spots and wandered elsewhere when the notion took. I slept in my car and rented a couple of places. I think my favourite beach was down in Harris at Hushinish. You can't go anywhere without bumping into some Walkhighland folk! It was great to meet Jim & Andrea who were touring in their motorhome - was great to see yous both :)

So here are some photos of my explorations :)
