An eight day tour of the north west of Scotland taking in some of the Hebridean Isles

Arriving on the incredible Hebridean Isles, you really will feel like you have escaped from it all as you explore breath taking coasts and countryside, fascinating history and unique island cultures on this, quite literally, breath of fresh air tour

FRIDAY DAY 2

Today, we travel through the spectacular Scottish Highlands to the magnificent Skye road bridge onto the Isle of Skye itself. We arrive at the port of Uig from where we take a ferry to Lochmaddy on the Isle of Benbecula, our destination for the next two nights. (Dinner on ferry)

SATURDAY DAY 3

This morning, we explore stunning South Uist, with crystal clear water and white powder beaches. We drive past the ruins of Ormacleit Castle towards the Isle of Eriskay, which is linked to South Uist by a stone causeway. The beautiful little island of Eriskay is home to the bay where Bonnie Prince Charlie first set foot on Scottish soil.

SUNDAY DAY 4

Today, we travel to Berneray, reputedly one of HRH Prince Charles' favourite destinations. We board the ferry to Leverburgh on the Isle of Harris and visit St Clement's Church, Rodel. We visit the Isle of Scalpay and admire its lovely waterfront villages before making our way to our final destination of the day, Stornoway, where we settle into our hotel for two nights.

MONDAY DAY 5

Today we enjoy a tour of the island's fantastic scenery. Lewis is the largest and most populated of the Western Isles, although it remains refreshingly unspoilt and uncrowded. Home to some of the most important seabird colonies in the UK, the Isle of Lewis is a haven to all forms of wildlife. During our circular tour, we visit Carloway Broch, an ancient Iron Age fortification and enjoy a visit to the mystic Calanais Visitor Centre where we will be able to see the Callanish Standing Stones, one of the best preserved megalithic sites in the whole of Scotland. We also visit Gearrannan Blackhouse Village and step back in time as we experience the way of life in a typical crofting township of the 19th century.
