To the far north-west lie the romantic and peaceful environs of the Outer Hebrides, a long chain of islands unique in their identity and language. Here, intrepid travellers will find the last bastion of the Gaelic language, softly spoken by the local people as often as they use English.
From the Butt of Lewis to the island of Barra, the landscape here changes radically as you journey through small villages strung together by long, often single-tracked, roads. From desolate moorland and the bright wildflowers of coastal ‘machair’ to high mountains and great sickles of white sands. This is a place of exhilarating contrasts.
The tradition of ‘crofting’ and creel fishing endures here, ensuring fresh farm produce and shellfish straight off the boat. Harris Tweed is still woven in many villages and there are timeless stone circles, ancient brochs and Neolithic dwellings to discover along the way.
Nature abounds on land and sea for those who wish to watch and wonder at rare wildlife, while hidden beaches and secret corners are just waiting for those willing to immerse themselves in the elements. These wild and windswept isles will refresh the weary mind and soul in a place which promises so many precious moments.

Be sure to see
Luskentyre Beach on the Isle of Harris. One of many incredible and often very quiet beaches – the vast open space and deep colours are a spectacular sight in any weather.
