South Harris has the highest mountains in the Western Isles with An Cliseam reaching 799 metres.
Northon (or Taobh Tuath) is at the end of a line of spectacular beaches,
but its alignment gives good views back to the mountains.

In fact there's about six miles of sea to the first land on Harris
then another 10 miles or so to the mountains.

From Sollas Beach

The Udal pensinsula is made largely of dunes and machair connecting rocky outcrops
and extends about three miles. These shots were all taken from Traigh Ear, also known as Sollas beach.
