Slow travel & photography

The Golden Road in Harris  – a beautiful but winding single-track route through some of Harris’s rocky East Coast. Stunning views and beautiful scenery are guaranteed.

Where did the name “golden road” originate? Maybe from the costs of building this road? The local historians have different opinions about this.

Beside all the wildlife you will also find lots of little galleries along the road and a tweed museum. The perfect road in Harris for slow travel, but let the locals pass you by!

For a long time the settlements were only reachable by sea, the road was only built in 1897.

I stoped at Plocrapol to visit a little Harris Tweed museum and also to even more enjoy the views.

During my time in Harros & Lewis I truly fell in love with tweed, such a stunning and cosy material.
