The Isle of Harris.

Although physically joined to Lewis, its larger neighbour, and not technically an ‘island’ at all, the name reflects the distinctive character of the Harris landscape, which is immediately apparent to anyone driving south from Stornoway or travelling north by ferry from the Uists. The rugged mountains of North Harris dominate the skyline and form a marked contrast with the rolling, loch-strewn moorland of Lewis and the expansive machair of the Uists.

Having said that, moorland and machair can also be found in Harris, together with all the other classic elements of the Scottish landscape – spectacular beaches, rocky coves, tumbling rivers and burns, iconic wildlife and isolated, but resilient and outward-looking communities.

Whether you are a local or a visitor, the varying landscapes and the changing weather offer an environment of exceptional diversity and wild, elemental beauty. For anyone with an interest in photography it is a playground of infinite variety and fascination throughout the year and I hope the images in the exhibition reflect that in some small degree.
