About This Spot

The "Golden road" (so called because of the high cost of building it in 1897) on the south east coast of Harris runs from Rodel in the south up to the junction with the A859 in the north. It is a spectuacular road to drive and there are countless photographic opportunities along its length.

The landscape on the east coast of Harris couldn't be more different from the golden beaches of the west. Here, on the east, the landscape is other worldly, with a series of bays and lochs reaching into the sea.
