The southern part of Lewis and Harris, an island in the Outer Hebrides on the west coast of Scotland. Harris is famous of its tweed. Harris Tweed is a tweed cloth that is handwoven by islanders at their homes, finished in the Outer Hebrides, and made from pure virgin wool dyed and spun in the Outer Hebrides. This definition, quality standards and protection of the Harris Tweed name are enshrined in the Harris Tweed Act 1993.
A great spot on the west coast of Harris. I was visiting Lewis and Harris in October 2018 with a group of photographers and we had experienced terrible weather on Lewis (see this post), non stop rain and no chance to see any ray of sun. After a couple of days we moved south to Harris, settled at the hotel and our guide had a look at the latest weather bulletin. He was optimistic for the end of the afternoon and told us we may enjoy a nice sunset. We left the hotel, still under heavy rain, and drove towards Losgaintir but none of us was really optimistic. And suddenly a miracle happened! Luskentyre Beach or Sands, which actually is as large as a bay, has been elected one of the finest beaches in the UK. Definitely a fantastic spot!
