Sunset over Outer Hebrides from Ferry

Recently on my way back from the island of Barra I captured this amazing light over the distant islands of the southern outer Hebrides from Cal Mac ferry Clansman.(Before her Demise)The vessell was also followed by Bottlenose dolphins and Gannets.For images of all the Scottish islands go to and


Now here is a nice fellow,its the owner of the Tarbert stores on Harris Alex Morrison seen here outside his store on the pier at tarbert. He is so typical of the islanders from Harris and Lewis with an infectious dry humour and friendly demeanour.

Actually I love the ferries that plough between oban and all the islands out there,but one of my favourite vessels is the "Clansman" which is at present a very sick ship. Many of us that travel on the cal mac fleet will also be missing her so much.The Hebridean Isles is a great vessel too but sadly she is not coping at all well with her new routes. We need the Clansman back ASAP.Here is one of my recent pictures of her passing the tip of kerrera.For images and prints of all cal mac vessels go to
