More Light Needed

The low winter light has picked out these lazy beds at Rodel, Harris (above), but more light needs to be cast on the old settlement here. Across the Minch has full details, larger photographs and asks some interesting questions. Lazy beds (below on Harris and Lewis) are not aptly named as they were the product and location of much hard work. After the Sabbath, the day of rest, crofters traditionally returned to toil on Mondays.
