The Hebrides/Skye region
The region offers some of the most spectacur scenery and walking experiences in the UK. The weather is very unpredictable but only adds to the experience!.
There is a nearby golf course at Askernish in South Uist and horseriding available in Benbecula.
Local delicacies include fresh crab, prawn and lobster as well as a range of locally caught fish. Stornoway black pudding is imported from Lewis!
The area is rich in history and is particularly famous as the landing place of Bonny Prince Charlie in 1745 and for events surrounding the sinking of the SS politician that ran aground off Eriskay in 1942 with its cargo of whisky and currency bound for Jamaica. It offers much in the way of Gaelic culture and there are a range of festivals and events throughout the year celebrating the music and language. The scenery is stunning and there are a range of nature walks nearby and on other islands. There is lots to interest nature lovers such as the Eriskay ponies that roam freely, seals and porpoises and The Balranald bird reserve in South Uist. Sea and loch fishing are also popular. There are visitor centres and places of interest such as the museum at Kildonan.
