The Sir Walter Scott Monument is 200 feet high, offering a wonderful view of the entire city. In six sections, this is a panoramic which shows the view from the top of this structure. I have also included a full panoramic view, for those with high speed connections.
Edinburgh to Gairloch
The travel from Edinburgh to Gairloch is beautiful, as is all of the countryside in the Highlands and Islands. This is a collection of the scenery along the way.
The Rua Reidh Lighthouse near Gairloch
The lighthouse near Gairloch has been converted into a bed and breakfast. It is a working lighthouse and the scene of the light stretching out into infinity at night while the waves crash on the shore is magical.
Gairloch to Skye
The trip from Dairloch to Skye is a collection of panoramic images. It is nearly impossible to not attempt to capture the fullness of the surroundings.
It would take a well-traveled individual to find a place in the world more beautiful than the Isle of Skye. Traveling around the perimeter afforded more image opportunities than a lifetime would permit.
Harris Island has an unusual beauty. While some would look at it and see barren rock, I saw an undisturbed land where life goes on without the constant hammering of human requirements. Of all places on the journey, this is the one I would most like to return.
Lewis is the northern and larger component of the island connected to Harris.
Callanish Stones I (Clachan Chalanais)
The Callanish Stones on the Isle of Lewis are large rocks that were put into position before Stonehenge. This main grouping contains 13 primary stones varying from one to five meters in height.
Callanish Stones II (Cnoc Ceann a' Ghàraidh)
The Callanish II Stones are an eliptical grouping of five stones, half the number of the original grouping. Evidence suggests that there was at one time a timber structure on the site.
Callanish Stones III (Cnoc Filibhir Bheag)
The Callanish III Stones are a set of 17 stones arranged as two concentric circles with an inner cove. It is located within a few hundred meters from the Callanish II stones. I had to compete with the grazing cows to get these images..
