Skye & The Outer Hebrides

  • Classic linear walks with surreal scenery on Skye and the Outer Hebrides
  • Skye’s brooding Cuillin Ridge and rocky Trotternish Peninsula
  • Luskentyre beach on the Isle of Harris - one of Scotland’s most beautiful
  • Traverse the 37 km long ‘Harris Walkway’ over remote moorland and machair
  • A warm island welcome at hand-picked B&B's and guesthouses
The Isles of Skye, Harris and Lewis combine on this week of classic point-to-point walks taking in some of the most dramatic scenery in Scotland. From the highland capital of Inverness, enjoy one of the country's most scenic rail journeys to the Isle of Skye where you will walk the highlights of the globally recognised Skye Trail to the colourful town of Portree and over the Trotternish ridge, passing the iconic Old Man of Storr. The adventure continues as you sail to the Outer Hebrides, basing yourself in Tarbert for 2 nights before spending your final night in historic Stornoway. Explore Harris and Lewis on foot; from the beautiful white sands and crystal clear waters of Luskentyre, to the solitude of windswept moorland and mountains on the Harris Walkway. Along the way, experience and sample the very best of Scottish hospitality through eating at restaurants serving the freshest local produce and staying in hand-picked B&B's and guesthouses with welcoming hosts ready to share their abundance of local knowledge.
