Tour Isle of Lewis Gearrannan Blackhouse Village

Wednesday, April 16, 2008

This evening I am presenting some images from my recent tour of Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides.

This is the section featuring this unique group of restored thatched cottages which reflect life in a typical crofting township of the early 20th century.

Included is a demonstration of weaving Harris Tweed which still continues to this day in island cottages.

This is a truly fascinating site in an idyllic setting of Carloway (when the sun shines!) and is well worth a visit.
