There's a long, long trail ahead for Chris Harris (above), project manager of the northern section of the Hebridean Way. He is considering, planning and supervising the prospective routes of the long-distance footpath that will, eventually, stretch from Vatersay and Barra to Stornoway and the Butt of Lewis. A Stornoway Gazette item focuses on a choice ahead that involves either a seaward path skirting Balallan and reaching the Pentland Road via Achmore or an inland stretch to Morsgail and coming close to Callanish. A look at the map shows that both will be rigorous and one particularly remote. Completion prospects for the Way are in 2016.
