Alex Harford Photography & Travel


Scotland is home to one of my favourite cities, Edinburgh, the stunning Highlands, and so much more I want to see.

In 2016, I achieved a dream of visiting the Hebrides (particularly Harris and Lewis), though spent so much time on other islands I didn't reach the island that originally sparked my interest as a teen (Jura's wilderness). I didn't regret it, as the Hebrides became one of my favourite places in the world. One day I will walk Jura's west coast (update: I did in 2019). I'd love to live on a croft in the Hebrides too...

My post, 29 Photos of Amazing Places in The Outer Hebrides, was so popular it nearly took my website down for two consecutive months. I lost the social shares after a domain migration, so feel free to share it again! :-)
