Lovely Port of Ness


We took a drive up to the Port of Ness this week.  The harbour is very scenic and the entrance is built into the natural rock formation.  Port of Ness is the most northerly village in the Isle of Lewis, about 34 miles (ish!) from my home on the East coast of the island (and about 27 miles from Stornoway - more importantly probably!).

I like the quaint feel of the village as you drive up to the harbour - the houses are quite tightly packed together giving it a cosy 'fishing village' atmosphere, quite different from the sprawling open village I live in. (Sorry no pics en route - I must have just been enjoying the scenery and didn't think to stop and take some snaps - next time, maybe!)

I'd love to see the harbour in a gale - it would look very dramatic :)  It was a lovely calm day when we visited though!



Personally, I'd love to live in the big house overlooking the harbour :) :)
. . . although I have a perfectly lovely seaview myself!


The sea was a stunning aquamarine colour - just beautiful!  We took a meandering drive back out of Ness through some little 'out of the way' villages.  

You can read more and see more photos of Port of Ness here on Undiscovered Scotland's website.   That's my 'touristy' post done!  I'll be back with some crafty updates next week when I'm back in the throes of my craft biz  :) 

Bye for now!

Funnily enough I caught up with a friend at the Festival of Quilts who has moved to Ness and has become a Harris Tweed weaver. Small world dear x
