Over the weekend, I had the opportunity for a drive round the West Side of Lewis. The result was a good collection of pictures, some of which I would like to share.
Old crofthouse at Brue
The Arnol Blackhouse
Dalbeg and its loch
Beyond Dalbeg's stack
Roineabhal near Balallan as seen from the Pentland Road at 7.30pm
Sunset near Grimshader
Windturbines on the Arnish Moor
The last picture does not convey the sound made by the farthest turbine, which was rotating at the time. I took the sunset picture near Loch Orasay, a mile to the south, and could still hear the hum of the generator. Imagine the sound when all three turbines are working; imagine the sound made by 180 turbines... Who said windturbines were quiet? The visual impact is of course the greatest.
