Tràigh Iar (West Beach)
Isle of Berneray
acrylic on canvas, 24″ × 12″
print available

Tràigh Iar is one of many gems amongst Outer Hebridean beaches.  Its white unspoilt sands run the entire length of the Island of Berneray and is such a rewarding and inspiring walk.  In the distance lie the magnificent hills of South Harris.  Berneray lies between Harris and North Uist, to which it is now linked by a causeway.  Prince Charles once stayed here and lodged with Mr McKillop, a local crofter.  He planted potatoes and enjoed crofting life in a Hebridean holiday.  This was during his bachelor days.  Walking on this often deserted beach on the West side of the Island is very calming.
