The short walk from Northton across the coastal plain of south west Harris, exposed to the roaring Atlantic beyond, is invigorating, especially on a sunny and warm evening like this. After leaving Northton beach and following the headland, the next stop is the beautiful sandy beach of Traigh na Cleabhaig, with comes into a view dominated by the imposing peak of Ceapabhal in the distance. I climbed down onto the sand, followed the shore and rejoined the path towards the Temple, the end-point of the walk, but with one fine beach still to come.
