When is an island not an island? At least one answer would be when they are referred to as the ‘Isle of Harris’ and the ‘Isle of Lewis’. These two supposed ‘islands’ are in fact joined at the hip and form one big island (the largest in Scotland). I’m not sure why the island doesn’t have just one name, that will have to remain a mystery (to me anyway).
Harris is the more southerly and mountainous of the two, with Clisham as it’s highest point at 799m or 2,621 ft. It is of course rightly famous for it’s magnificent beaches. Luskentyre being perhaps the most famous, though we enjoyed discovering several others.
