The Butt of Lewis


On Wednesday we went across Barvas Moor to the Butt of Lewis, stopping for coffee at the Morven Gallery on the way.

The Butt is the northernmost point of the Isle of Lewis.

The Butt is the location for a lighthouse built in the 1860s and designed by David Stevenson.

There is a sheltered cove called Stoth on the road up to the lighthouse.

Lots of sea birds can be seen at the Butt of Lewis, like these Gannets flying along.

And this Herring Gull just standing around.

As are these Cormorants.

And Fulmars nesting.
