Our Trip to the Isle of Lewis:5 Homeward Bound

By Bernie Bell

And so we headed home

Via a detour to Corrieshallock Gorge and Falls, which the man we spoke with at Loch Eriboll had told us about.  We hadn’t had time on the way to Lewis, so we went on the way back , instead.  It’s good to talk!

We stopped for lunch at the Oykel Bridge Hotel, where the friendly barkeep told us about the River Oykel Falls,  which he thought we’d like to see, and he was right! A different kind of falls from Corrieshallock – each impressive in their own way.

And then we, went home. This was about 5 years ago, and, come this May, we mean to – hope to, go to Harris!
