The Hebridean Islands

January 25, 2015

Morar Scottish HighlandsScotland has over 790 islands, many of which can be found off the west coast.  Ferries ply the routes between these islands, and a few can also be reached by air.

Some tour highlights

  • Flying into the Isle of Barra in a tiny plane and landing on the beach
  • Exploring the clear waters and fine white powder beaches of the island of Iona, a site of pilgrimage since St Columba established an abbey on the island in AD 563
  • Head to the Outer Hebridean island of Lewis and Harris, a place of windswept moorland and deserted beaches. Visit pre-historic sites such as the superb standing stones at Calanais, thought to date from around 3000 BC.
  • The Isle of Skye is always popular with visitors and it’s not hard to see why – stunning mountain scenery, inlets, bays and lochs, tiny villages and thousands of years of history are yours to discover.
