Isle of Harris Tour

Thursday, April 17, 2008

This evening I am posting some images of a recent visit to Harris in the Outer Hebrides.

Harris is well known for the eponymous Harris Tweed cloth which is still a cottage industry with the wool spun in private houses.

Here is a small shop we visited where the wool is spun on site. I bought some rolls of cloth to have made into trousers (pants). This outlet is set in a superb, remote location and definitely not "touristy"-a genuine traditional operation mainly selling traditional Harris Tweed jackets.

Here is am image of the loom which, unfortunately, was not in operation on the day of our visit.

Here is the inside of the well stocked shop.
