Callanish was a gathering place for many tourists and locals last night as BBC 2 Scotland broadcast its Midsummer Live show from the Standing Stones, with presenters Dougie Vipond and Ellie Harrison making the best of having to host a midsummer event during which the sun didn’t even make a hint of an appearance. Despite a good forecast from the previous day, it was heavy grey cloud all the way, turning to rain as the live broadcast entered its final section after 10 o’ clock.
Never mind, everyone seemed to enjoy the event despite the dreich weather…

As the days lengthen and the light improves after the steady grey of January and most of February, I’ll be making quite a few photo trips as time allows over the next few months, adding updates to my photos of Harris (especially the hills and round the coast), St. Kilda and the Uists/Barra.
I’d also like to photograph again on Eriskay, as my last two visits there didn’t give me enough time to explore the island properly.
