Another day in Lewis, another beach. - more isolated this one, but well worth the twisted mountainous road to get there. Camus Bostadh in Great Bernera. Bostadh (pr Bosta) means small farm and is a Norse word. The west coast here abounds with names which show their Viking heritage. Again, I won't say too much, as the pictures pretty much speak for themselves..
One interesting feature about this beach (yes, I know the setting is enough of a feature, but...), about 20 years ago a storm caused the sand dunes to shift, revealing 4 Iron Age houses built on the beach. Imagine finding that when you went to walk your dog in the morning! Once excavated, they built this replica close to the site, and recovered the originals with the sand. Unfortunately it was still closed for the Winter, so we couldn't see inside, but a definite visit next time. I love how it just blends in to the landscape.
The original Iron Age village was just behind this fence - but the chap below was roaming around freely. Luckily he was friendly enough - we Scots generally are :)
