So, now I am back home again but not empty handed, oh no!! Apart from some great memories and a wonderful sense of well being having been mentally and physically restored, I have more black pudding than you can shake a stick at….
No trip would be complete without a small purchase of tweed. Here I have some beautiful jewel coloured plains….
Last but not least I have this beautiful handmade willow Hebridean Sket……
It is sitting in the hearth in my living room holding a couple of hebridean stones (gneiss?) that I collected at Port Ness when I first went over to buy tweed a few years ago. I think they look like eggs in a nest – a symbol of ideas/future plans about to hatch ?(hopefully!)
That concludes our trip around the Outer Hebrides and west coast of Scotland - as Isobel and I constantly remark – how fortunate we are to live in this beautiful, beautiful country!
