Island explorers can choose from a selection of walks offering ample opportunities for wildlife watching, while the more intrepid may venture into the island’s crystal clear waters – recognised as one of Europe’s most spectacular dive sites, as well as being home to whales and basking shark, which can sometimes be spotted from the shore.
Tour the old village, where St Kilda’s indigenous Soay sheep wander and graze among the blackhouse ruins of a bygone island age, or visit the museum house on the main village street, where artefacts from that era are exhibited.
Find the faerie house – an underground store that could date from as early as 500BC, or climb to the top of Mullach Mor to gain a greater understanding of the settlements positioning against the Atlantic elements.
ISLE OF HARRIS
The outer Hebridean island of Harris is one that has offered inspiration for generations. With its rich traditions, stunning shifting scenery and strong sense of community. Harris offers a unique introduction to island life on the edge. Visit the village of Tarbert, home to the Harris Tweed Shop and the recently opened Isle of Harris Distillery.
Gaze out across the West Harris sands to the famous uninhabited Castaway island of Taransay and experience a glimpse of the isolation from which the proud self-sufficent communities of the Outer Hebrides were born, or tour the adjoining Isle of Scalpay with its strong seafaring connections to understand more about the symbiosis of islanders and ocean.
ISLE OF LEWIS
The largest of the Outer Hebrides, Lewis offers amazing opportunities to explore all the elements life on the edge in the Atlantic Ocean – with history, heritage, wilderness, wildlife, arts and crafts.
See the ancient Callanish Standing Stones rising from the Lewis landscape to give an imposing outline against the endless island skies and hear the echoes of the past murmuring round these monoliths – an eternal testament to islanders enduring spirit and ingenuity.
Explore the sea caves and stacks at Garry Beach to better understand how the relentless seas have shaped the island environment and the lifestyles of those who live here.
The Flannan Isles
A haven for breeding seabirds and an exciting destination for wildlife enthusiasts as the surrounding sees are the habitat of pilot whales, minke whales, and dolphins. There are 7 main islands known as the seven hunters due to the large number of shipwrecks. Visiting Eileen Mor will be subject to weather restrictions.
Our journey finishes in the picturesque fishing town of Ullapool on the shore of Loch Broom.
