What Have I Been Missing?
This is the view of Seaforth Island to which I am accustomed while travelling on the Stornoway to Tarbert road. Below is the description of its loch made by Hamish Haswell-Smith in his The Scottish Islands - 'Loch Seaforth is a long narrow loch wedged betrween high mountains and towering cliffs. The winds whisper through the peaks, build up their strength, meet in the corries, and then without warning sweep savagely down the mountain sides and flatten the waters of the loch with unpredicable ferocity.' What have I missed being a seasonal traveller to these parts? This small image of Loch Seaforth gives an indication of large movements in the skies.
