Weave Your Own Story in the Outer Hebrides

The idyllic island chain of the Outer Hebrides offers a rich tapestry of experiences unlike any other place on earth.

You could get your island adventure off to a flying start – take a plane and land on the white sands of Traigh Mhor, the world’s only beach airport for scheduled flights, on the enchanting Isle of Barra. Get a real taste of the islands and sample Isle of Harris Gin, infused with locally harvested sugar kelp, or perhaps head to the shoreline to meet some of the natives of the Outer Hebrides, which include laidback seals, playful otters and graceful seabirds.

Ready to make a splash? Take to the water and explore the coast. Set a gentle paddling pace in a sea kayak, or ride the crest of the waves on a surfing session. Or why not stay dry as you traverse causeways and pedal along island roads on two wheels following the Hebridean Way, an unforgettable long distance cycling route?

Discover the layers of Gaelic culture and important traditions including the weaving of beautiful Harris Tweed. Visit fantastic events such as the HebCelt Festival in Stornoway, or get an insight into the island’s ancient heritage at the breathtaking and mysterious Calanais Standing Stones. Weave together your own incredible story in the Outer Hebrides.
