That was me last week! And the title is to tell our HU C25K member, Windswept(number?), that I enjoyed running and cycling on your lovely island last week. On Tuesday I did my long run, from Stornoway out along the Eye Penisula to Pabail; a 25km round trip. I wasn't expecting it to be so sunny and hot and I regretted not having my running cap. I passed one other runner; well he was dressed like a runner, although he was walking at the time.

The following day hubby and I cycled to the very end of the road at Tolsta and camped on the headland above the beach, Traigh Gheadadh. Pic of the camping spot here:

It was very windy when we were cycling, especially with that S to SW wind when were headed back to Stornoway on Thursday. Hard work, but great cross-training.

A lovely short visit. All the nicer for seeing Common Dolphins and Porpoises on the ferry crossing.

  • Sounds lovely, if a wee bit exhausting! :)

  • That looks SO beautiful !

  • Oh that's lovely. We've visited Harris and Benbecula but not got as far as Stornoway - yet!

  • Wow that looks stunning. Very impressive running distance too.

  • A really inspiring place to run! Or cycle or walk for that matter. I love these sorts of places

  • woah! sounds like a terrific trip! I guess cycling tourism is a very good way to appreciate the wonderful vista. And 25k is serious running!

    Well done!

    Happy running and cycling...

  • Hi,
