Pentland Road Centenary

For many visitors to the Western Isles, the Pentland Road from Stornoway to Carloway is the first taste of the natural scenery of Lewis. This stretch of the awesome and, at times, desolate was constructed in 1912 and next Saturday there will be Centenary Celebrations.

It is indeed a very special road. I remember it before it was tarmaced about 30 years ago and it was even more romantic and "wild".
