Sep 28, 2006 - Day 6: Lewis - Harris

Today we take the road south to the Island of Harris, famous for its gorgeous beaches, magnificent mountains and traditional crofting culture. These islands are home to the Clan MacLeod who have lived here for over 1200 years. We will tell you all about the battles with the Vikings and clan rivalry between the MacLeods and MacDonalds. We also visit Rodel church built by the warrior chief Alistair 'Crotach' MacLeod, and see the pagan fertility symbol - a Shiela-nan-Gig.
