The Missing One?

Here is the Iron Age Wheelhouse on Grimsay, which was photographed by Bob Jones. The island is one of the ten through which cyclists will be wheeling their way on the designated route through the Hebrides. It escaped me when compiling the blog for last Tuesday until one reader inserted a comment, but is home to 169 people. Some of them would just recall the time when Grimsay was not a stepping stone on the North Ford Causeway linking North Uist with Benbecula, but subject to the difficulties associated with tidal islands.
