Friday photo: Gillaval and the Harris Hotel

To Harris for this weeks Friday photo and it is of Tarbert Hotel and the majestic Gillaval in the background. Hillwalking is an ever growing passtime as it was in June 1951 when sender of this postcard sent it to his parents in Hants, England. “Dear Mum and Dad. Just a card to let you know I’m enjoying myself immensely out here in the Hebrides. I’ve been hill walking twice since Thursday. If it is fine tomorrow, I am going swimming. On Monday, about 8 of us are going to tackle the highest one near here – 5,623ft so it should be good!” Phew! Each to their own!!
