After my day in St Kilda, I said goodbye to Harris for now and drove to the Isle of Lewis. It was time to explore the Uig peninsula and the surrounding area. The home of the Lewis Chessmen.
Somewhere in the endless dunes of Uig Bay the ancient chessboard made out of walrus ivory was found – known today as the Lewis Chessmen. The original chessmen live in the British Museum in London, but there are still a few (very big) chessmen to be found on Lewis.
The Bay of Uig is an endless beach, one can walk for hours and just enjoy the views and take a bit of paddle in the sea.
