Rocky cutting on the B8011
The reconstructed B8011 in West Lewis has been built through the landscape with cuttings and embankments, unlike the old road which was laid over the landscape. The new road encourages rapid progress, but drivers should beware of sheep and red deer.

The Old Bridge - Geograph - 1241011.jpg
The Old Bridge This is the old bridge at Kinlochroag which sits over the Morsgail River. Until the 1990's this road was the only link from Garynahine and the main part of Lewis, to places like Uig, Brenais and many more small villages. Over the ridge to the left is a new bridge with a dual track road. The old croft house was refurbished around the same time and is now a holiday let called 'Hawthorne Cottage'.
