Sound of Taransay, Harris, Western Isles, Scotland

The BBC television series Castaway made a star of Ben Fogle and the featured island was Taransay, off the west coast of Harris. On a summer day that the one that I travelled south from Tarbert, it gains a placid location in turquoise seas not atypical of the Caribbean. Such was the aspect when I saw them, but I suspect that all is less alluring when seas are stormy. The fact the such settled weather conditions are ephemeral is all the more reason to relish them when they stay a little while.
