The perfect introduction to these magical islands, exploring from Barra to the Uists, then Lewis & Harris.

*As featured in The Telegraph Travel in June 2016 – Free spirit: island hopping in the Outer Hebrides*

Scattered in a 130-mile arc off the north-west coast of Scotland, the Outer Hebrides invariably seduce newcomers with their intoxicating blend of wild natural beauty, abundant wildlife, sparkling sandy beaches and stunning rocky landscapes.  You’ll be entranced by dramatically different sights on this island-hopping adventure – everything from unforgettable sunsets to mysterious stone circles, perhaps even an otter scampering across the road.

This holiday is described as self-drive with your own car. Alternatively, we can arrange a fly-drive Outer Hebrides holiday for you or why not choose to explore car-free?
