TPAS Annual Telegraph Pole Expedition

Outer Hebrides, Barra to Butt of Lewis (April/May 2019)

Yes, you all missed the chance to burgle my house while I was away.  And the key was under the mat the whole time.  Not just me but the entirety of Telegraph Pole Towers took the high road to the top left hand corner of Great Britain.  In order to avoid the M6, we drove first overnight to Holyhead for an early ferry to Dublin.  Drove to Donegal just for a laugh and because I was promised a pint of something special.  Then caught a ferry Larne to Cairnryan.  Drove north to Oban.  Camped the night in Taynuilt station car park.  5 hour ferry to Castlebay, Barra for week #1 in a cottage next the airport beach.  Then ferry from Northbay, Barra to Eriskay and week #2 cottage on South Uist.  Thence ferry from Berneray to Leverburgh (Harris) and drive north for week #3 at Tolstachaolais, Lewis.  All finished off with a stinking campervan meander homewards via the B roads of Scotland over 3 days with a dash along the nasty and unavoidable M6 bit.
