On the Beach in Machir Bay, Isle of Islay One of the best beaches on Islay is probably Machir Bay on the west coast. This video filmed in April 2012 with a GoPro Hero2 hopefully provides some unusual perspectives and new views. It covers most of the beach, starting from the arrival through the dunes. Then we walk and jog all the way from the north to the south with a few stops. These include the old wreck on the beach and the rocks towards the southern end. It might get a bit wet at times, don't be surprised.
The Selkie Bride - Matthew Dickson The Selkie Bride. A Scottish Folktale. Long ago on an island at the northern edge of the world, there lived a fisherman called Neil MacCodrum. He lived all alone in a stone croft where the moorland meets the shore, with nothing but the guillemots for company and the stirring of the sand among the shingle for song. But in the long winter evenings he would sit by the peat-fire and watch the blue smoke curling up to the roof, and his eyes looked far and far away as if he was looking into another country. And sometimes, when the wind rustled the bent-grass on the machair, he seemed to hear a soft voice sighing his name. One spring evening, the men of the clachan were bringing their boats full of herring into shore. They swung homeward with glad hearts, and their wives lit the rushlights, so that the wide world dwindled to a warm quiet room. Neil MacCodrum was the last to drag his boat up the shingle and hoist the creel of fish upon his back. He stood a while watching the seabirds fly low towards the headland, their wings dark against the evening sky, then turned to trudge up the shingle to the croft on the machair. It was as he turned he saw something move in the shadows of the rocks. A glimmer of white and then - he heard it between birds' cries - high laughter like silver. He set down the creel, and with careful steps he neared the rocks, hardly daring to breathe, and hid behind the largest one. And then he saw them - seven girls with long flowing hair, *** and white as ...

Ferry to Berneray, off North Uist, from Leverburgh, Isle of Harris, Outer Hebrides, Scotland It's an eleven mile trip to Berneray, an island of about 10 sq km and around 130 inhabitants. In 1999, it was joined to North Uist, its southerly neighbouring island, by a causeway. This improved travel to the island, employment prospects and the carriage of produce, such as crabs and lobsters. Yum yum. The causeway contains culverts that allow the easy passage of otters and fish from one side to the other. There are also big signs on the road asking drivers to look out for otters crossing. A key feature of Berneray is its machair - a coastal plain made up of windblown shell sand.

lochanside From Tich Frier's new cd "Shanghaied" "Lochanside" Lochanside (Tune McLellan; words and arrangement Jim Malcolm MCPS PRS; pub Malcolm) Lyrics Come the winter, cold and dreary Brings the hawk down from the high scree to the whins where snowy hares hide All around the Lochanside Come the spring the land lies weary Till the sun shines out so cheery Brings the bloom, for all of June¹s pride All around the Lochanside If you'd been you¹d have seen the scatter O the peezies o¹er the machair When above the tawny owl glides All around the Lochanside And the heron he comes a-creeping Through the rashes so green and dreeping to the pool where wily trout slide All around the Lochanside Aye if you ever have a reason To be here in any season Come and try the barley bree in Round the fire on Lochanside Summer time the fish are louping Dippers in the burnies couping Swallows fly from dawn til evens-tide All around the Lochanside By the autumn the pinks are winging Blaeberries o¹er the moors are hanging Salmon through the surging spate fight All around the Lochanside If ye¹d been ye¹d have seen the scatter O the peezies o¹er the machair When above the tawny owl glides All around the Lochanside Aye if you ever have a reason To be here in any season Come and try the barley bree in Round the fire on Lochanside Aye if you ever have a notion To be welcomed with devotion Travel home o¹er any ocean To be here on Lochanside

Rabbits on the Machair (92) No rabbits, I repeat... NO real rahbbits were used in any dubious experiments in the making of this video...none were chased, run over or even spotted... I wonder why ?... any resemblance to any known rahbbit is purely a coincidental freak event... Concept and lyrics by Axel Campbell, other mad bits by Karl Random (well what do you expect), starring Mary Carrillo, Alan Fergus, and the original smashed car ! Alan and Axel on guitars and Karl does some mirror image vocals... Recorded June 92

Running The Edge - Running the Edge The 1995 Western Isles Efamol Challenge involved three days of cyling, canoeing and running over the roughest of terrain in the most westerly part of Europe. Believed to be the toughest race in the UK, it started on Eriskay (the island where Bonnie Prince Charlie landed to lead the Jacobite rebellion in 1745). Competing teams in the Western Isles Challenge had to canoe from Eriskay to South Uist and then opt to run or cyle across the Machair. And that was just Day One!

A TRIP TO THE UIST ISLANDS IN THE OUTER HEBRIDES #3 LES AND GRAHAMS TRIP ON THE UIST ISLANDS, North Uist is a stunning blend of beaches, machair lands and freshwater lochs interrupted by rolling dark moorland hills. Running 13 miles North to South it takes roughly 45 miles to travel around the whole island. The West coast looks out to the beautiful small Isle of Vallay which can be reached at low tide and is home to a foreboding deserted mansion house. To the North, the charming island of Berneray, home to an active, friendly community and HRH Prince Charles' favourite island, is where the ferry arrives from Harris, and is now linked to North Uist by causeway.
