Winter in Harris

Winter in Harris can be long and harsh, but also stunningly beautiful.

Towards the winter solstice, full daylight only lasts for about 6 hours. Add to this dark, ominous skies, driving rain and biting winds, and a visitor may well wonder why anyone would wish to move here.

But then, a day like this occurs – blue skies, sunshine and calm seas with a dusting of snow on the hilltops. This photograph was taken from our home at the beginning of December. And today – January 1st 2017 – had moments similar. Although there was slightly more cloud and the wind was keen, we still enjoyed a bracing walk on Luskentyre beach. Whatever the weather and seasons bring, we are so pleased that we relocated here and started this business.

The last week has been a wonderful time to take a deep breath and reflect on the year that has past and start planning for the year ahead.

We have lots of exciting projects to announce in the not too distant future, but for now, Doug and I would just like to wish all of you a very happy, healthy and peaceful 2017.
