Christmas Bonus: ‘Tea and Beans’ – Hiking on the Isle of Harris

Episode 21 (Season 2 Bonus): ‘Tea and Beans’

From breathtaking landscapes to welcoming locals, the Isle of Harris has stolen my heart. Let this lovely story about island hospitality convince you too!

‘Tea and Beans’ is a story about two chance encounters I had on the Isle of Harris when I walked the Hebridean Way. The people of the Outer Hebrides, their warm welcome and their incredible hospitality have stuck with me ever since. I’m sure you’ll soon understand why!
