Berneray Isle West Bay, Hebrides, Scotland

Berneray Isle West Bay, Hebrides, Scotland

It is unbelievably satisfying to return to familiar places time and again. One of these familiar places for me is the west bay of Berneray Isle on the north edge of the Isle of Uist in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland.

But why has this bay become one of my favourites? There is a multiple answer to this question. The first leg of the answer is that this bay is way out of reach for many – although it is only a short walk from the carpark. The second leg is that the almost white sands are surrounded by gorgeous and photogenic under the right light sand dunes. The third leg is that the view of the setting sun behind the distant island of Boreray can be outstandingly gorgeous.

All you need is 3 main ingredients: a lovely sunset, a Spartan composition and long exposure.
