Hebridean Storms

I write this as the latest winter storm, "Henry" is bearing down on Scotland. It's scattered a few bins in Glasgow and threatened my hair but it's not really come to much yet. There seem to have been more storms this year than usual, or maybe it’s just that we’ve dramatised them by giving them names....Anyway, the wild weather has made me think of a stormy day spent at Mangurstadh beach on the west coast of Lewis last year. It’s a dramatic beach with savage, wave-thrashed cliffs, exposed to the full power of the Atlantic and I imagine it’s taking a real battering just now. Hope everyone is safe up there.
