Harris Blues

Posted on

The famous Seilebost lay-by view towards Luskentyre.

We love this island, whatever the weather. Come rain or shine, we feel blessed to be here. But, sometimes the shine keeps on shining and even us locals get to witness the wow factor.

It's been a week of back-to-back blue skies, and the first (and hopefully not the last) long run of good weather this year.

As these words are being written, the call of the great island outdoors is being heard so we're going to let the staff's photos do the talking so we can get away from the desk in double quick time...

Thanks to all the distillery team who took time to share their photos and saved this storyteller a few hours of writing work!

As we head into the weekend, we hope skies are just as blue wherever you are in the world and you have some Isle of Harris Gin to hand to keep you connected to our island home.

Slàinte to the sunshine!
