Making An Entrance – A Trip to Tolsta
A trip from Stornoway to Tolsta is a rewarding journey for the keen portologist. The Spined Grecian Receptacles, above left, are encountered not far from town and they are but a precursor of the wonders to come as you travel north through Coll, Back and Gress. On reaching Tolsta you will be entranced by the Global Pyramidics looking out over the Minch, above centre, but the Green Globals shown at the very top of this page are surely a Hebridean classic.
