About this location

The Hebrides region

The outer Hebrides or Western Isles as they are also known, are a long chain of islands located in the Northwest of the UK.

These Islands are one of the last few unspoilt wild places left in Britain, and they offer fantastic opportunities to see iconic Scottish wildlife, such as - sea eagles, golden eagles, whales, dolphins, basking sharks, deer, otters, salmon and many more.

The influence of North Atlantic Drift, (a warm oceanic current system) ensures that the islands enjoy a relatively temperate climate despite their Northerly position.

The Islands have a long history of inhabitation as evidenced by spectacular monuments such as the Callinish Stones dating from 4,500 - 5,000 years ago, moving forward in time the Norse influence on the islands from their time under the control of the Norwegian kings and Earls, is still evident in place names.

So whether you come for the adventure, wildlife, history or just to unwind, the Western Isles will not disappoint.


This dramatic and picturesque island has many places to explore. From the majestic North Harris hills with their spectacular scenery and wonderful wildlife to its many breath-taking beaches.

Offshore, smaller, uninhabited islands may also be accessed, such as the iconic St Kilda, a World Heritage Site with some of the most amazing vistas to be seen anywhere in the world.

The rich cultural heritage of Harris can be seen in its archaeology sites such as St. Clements Church in Rodel, the chapel ruins at Northton, and its standing stones to name but a few.

The living culture of the Isle of Harris can be sampled in the Gaelic language, in music and in song.

This place is truly somewhere special, and the best way to discover how special it is, is to come and experience it for yourself.
