It was a glorious and very sunny Sunday morning and I decided to drive to the Butt of Lewis and make some stops along the way. My first stop was pretty close to Shawbost, a tiny little hut along the road – The Shieling in Barvas and Brue.
A shieling is a little hut or cottage in the moors used in the summertime by the women and children who took the animals out. Today some shielings are used as summer homes.
The shieling is tiny but offers everything one might need and the surroundings of this one are stunning!
