"West of these
Out to seas
Colder than the Hebrides I must go,
Where the fleet of stars is anchored,
And the young Star Captains glow".
James Elroy Flecker
The island of Baleshare is to the West of North Uist, and is connected by a narrow causeway. The beach is on the far Western side, where it is facing towards the wild North Atlantic and the distant lands of Labrador, which are on the same latitude.
