With its gorgeous white beaches, wild moors, jagged peaks and unique Gaelic culture, the Outer Hebrides is a place of striking contrasts.
These islands have been inhabited for more than 6,000 years and many of the ancient symbols of a bygone life are still clear for the visitor to see. There are 55 sites of Special Scientific Interest, as well as two National Nature Reserves. The islands boast golden eagles, corncrakes, basking sharks and bottlenose dolphins as well as 370 different bird species. The islands are renowned as a natural larder, with talented local producers delivering premium Hebridean fare, including smoked salmon, fresh shellfish, succulent beef and lamb.
Also included in our Outer Hebrides adventure is a full day trip to St Kilda, the islands on the edge of the world, some 50 miles out in the mid Atlantic.
These amazing islands are home to Europe’s greatest collection of seabirds, including puffins, gannets, fulmars, kittiwakes, great skuas and migrating whales, dolphins and porpoises. These spectacular islands are as stunning and atmospheric as anywhere in the world and will provide memories that will stay with you forever.
