This post was prompted by a conversation I had last week at a photographic exhibition I visited.
On a trip to the Outer Hebrides a couple of decades ago, we visited the island of Lewis and Harris.
On one trip out from Stornaway, into the North Harris mountains, we noted the site of an old whaling station across an inlet. The only really visible remainder is the tall square chimney….the original buildings were wooden with corrugated iron roofs.
You can just make out some concrete platforms that mark the locations of buildings, sheds and working floors that were used during the site’s 60 year history. It looked a bleak and remote site.
