This is what the Machair looks like in June and in July other varieties start popping up making it look like a Persian carpet. In August they all die and only the heather blooms and the whole area becomes purple. Most of the world's Machair are found on the Western side of the Outer Hebrides because conditions for it are ideal there. While there are some in the Inner Hebrides like this patch in Calgarry. To really see and experience the Machair you have to go to the Outer Hebrides and in July if possible.
