Location description from owner

The Hebrides region

The Outer Hebrides are located in one of the most remote parts of the UK, sitting off the NW of Scotland in the Atlantic. It's climate and topography are therefore different the mainland, providing the visitor with wild extremes of weather and landscape, which is always spectacular.

It is a land of contrasts, with high mountains of ancient rock, and soft white sand disappearing into turquoise water. The Atlantic wind can blow in a squall in minutes, and be back in sunshine just as quickly. Interestingly 2012 found the highest UK sunshine levels in this area.

It is an area which traces a long history, through thousands of years, leaving whole landscapes of monumentation, and remote remains of long abandoned communities. Wildlife abounds in the hills and the sea.

A hauntingly romantic past sits side by side with the enterprise and determination of the crofting communities which are making a strong impact onisland life

Isle of Harris

Harris is the perfect holiday location for outdoors activities. There are wonderful routes for hill-walkers, both difficult and easy, giving spectacular views, with opportunities to see eagles, deer and historical remains. There are lots of guided walks available which can explain the intricacies of the natural and cultural heritage.

Trips can be made to the remote islands of St Kilda, loch or sea fishing can be hired or sea life tours taken around the east coast bays.

Cycling and surfing are increasingly popular, and surfing is now beginning to take advantage of the long Atlantic rollers which constantly break on the west coast. Simply sitting on a sand-dune or boulder listening to the sounds of the island can be the most relaxing and spiritual experience.

Recently there has been an explosion of culinary delights in Harris, and it is possible to explore the island sampling new treats daily at the numerous cafes and restaurants popping up in the remotest places, and which can often be a destination in themselves.
