Walking from Nisabost beach to Mc Leod´s stone in Harris.

Nisabost Beach, Traigh Nisabos in Scottish – is one of the amazing and stunning beaches on the West side of the Isle of Harris. It was my 2nd day and I wanted to go on a little walk from Nisabost beach to a standing stone on a hill above the beach.

This was actually my second try to do this little hike, as it was raining before and I turned back halfway up the hill and went for a coffee at Talla na mara nearby. This is a restaurant, there are artist studios and galleries. Definitely would recommend a visit!

Back to the beach and up to another try going up the hill and then down on the other side will bring me to another stunning beach Traigh lar.

Macleod’s Stone

Clach Mhic Leoid is a standing stone with an amazing backdrop. The stone probably dates back to the Neolithic area and was used for rituals, including funerary rites. Other stones near the standing stone are believed to be the remains of a cairn.

Macleod´s Stone and there should also be an amazing view of Traigh Lar, but the rain was coming in quickly.

So in the end I didn´t walk down to Traigh lar but got drenched a second time that day.
