Friday photo: Loch Bee, South Uist

This week’s image shows a peaceful day at Loch Bee causeway in South Uist. 

Loch Bee, South Uist

Loch Bee is a tidal and stretches across South Uist linking to the sea on both sides.  Originally built in the 18th century for cart traffic, it is probably the oldest causeway in the islands.  The original structure was built from two dry stone walls infilled with shingle and sand.  It was brought up to modern road standards in the 1980s and 90s.

Now a days the causeway is busy with traffic, but it looks like in calmer days it was a nice place to sit and enjoy the views!
