Sound of Harris is a journey into the Outer Hebrides guided by centuries-old stories of the land and tales of the sea. These remote islands - and the harsh conditions in which people eek out a living - have inspired stories and a tradition of storytelling that is as rich as the islands are barren. Taking the stories as our starting point we have explored the islands, meeting people who continue to make their living at sea, on the land or in the small villages, as well as those who come to escape or in search of loneliness. We felt the influence of the weather, the power of the sea and saw faces in the mountains and monster-like shapes emerge from the seaweed as the tide receded.
