Fàilte! (Welcome!)
This blog is the result of my ongoing research into the people, places and events that have shaped the Western Isles of Scotland and, in particular, the 'Siamese-twins' of Harris and Lewis.

I cannot guarantee the accuracy of everything that I have written (not least because parts are, perhaps, pioneering) but I have done my best to check for any errors.
My family mainly lived along the shore of the Sound of Harris, from An-t-Ob and Srannda to Roghadal, but one family 'moved' to Direcleit in the Baighs...

Loch Direcleit

Looking South along the length of the loch towards the sea at Bagh Direcleit
The loch. a mere 140 yards from the sea & 40 yards above it, descends to 27 yards at its deepest point

Looking South-West, this scene typifies Direcleit
The second-furthest bay is where the stream drains the loch to the sea 300 yards away.
The high-point on the right is about 150 feet above sea-level.
