North Uist Panoramas – Leacach An Tigh Chloiche

This was the final site I shot before leaving the island & was by far the most difficult to get to. It’s over an hour’s walk from the nearest road (well, a farmer’s track that turns off the road) & involves walking straight through a bog as there simply isn’t any way to get around. Wellies are a definite necessity & tbh waders wouldn’t go amiss. My boss on the island went out with me & had to physically drag me out when I placed one foot wrong & that leg disappeared up to the thigh O_o

The view from the top of the hill was worth it though, even if I had to squelch all the way up the hill & then all the way back to the car after the bog incident…

This is sort of like the classic cliché standing stone shot that most people that visit North Uist seem to take, except instead of taking it at Pobull Fhinn I took it up here so at least it’s slightly less repetitive.

If you click this Roundme image it will load the space & let you click between the 4x different panoramas & drag them with your mouse/finger to look around. Once it’s loaded you can double click to go fullscreen (highly recommended).
