Today the sun was brilliant as we set out on the MV Heberdies from Uig, Isle of Skye to Lochmaddy, North Uist.  The crossing time was 1 hour and 40 minutes with light to moderate seas cool fresh air and sunshine.

After arriving in Lochmaddy and catching some lunch we started of on a counterclockwise tour of North Uist.  The scenery was lovely but unfortunately it did not lead us to the expected shoreline or coast except in one location.  Along the way we stopped in Bal Ranald and visited an old abandoned church and cemetery simply to get an appreciation of the age and condition of the stones in the cemetery.  Parts of this area is believed to be where Margie Ann's ancestors on the MacLellan side originated from and indeed it is a fair land with many rolling hills and large farms.

We then journeyed on across the causeway to the Isle of Grimsby and our B & B where we were met by Molly a border collie - she was glad to greet us but wanted us to go her way - these dogs have an inherent need to heard whatever they can find that moves.  Our hostess greated us with tean and biscuits.

After getting settled we went and did a bit more exploring in the area of Paibeil where some of Margie Ann's ancestors of the MacKinnon Clan are beileved to have come from.  Today the area is a rich farming area that stretches it seems endlessly for miles with numerous narrow country roads.

Thank you for the photos of the coos. Some of the scenery is just amazing. And the photos of the cemetery were really neat, too.
