Photo Journal of Brian's Outer Hebrides Adventure

One of our customers Brian shares his photo diary from a very sunny Outer Hebrides Island Hopscotch tour last August.

As you can see the weather was unbelievable every day, I could not believe my luck...in Scotland!!! My favorite walk was climbing Ceapabhal, the view from the summit was the best I have ever seen.

All the accommodation that I stayed in was fantastic. After the Heathbank Hotel on Barra which did the best seafood meals I have ever had. My second favorite was the Langass Lodge on North Uist, an old Victorian hunting lodge, very posh, amazing food.

All the ferry journeys were great fun and a real adventure, pre-booked tickets are a must, a lot of people were turned away as the ferries were full every day. The whole holiday was perfect, everything worked to perfection, never had any issues anywhere.

Due to Covid19 it was a tad surreal as everybody was very friendly but at the same time keeping their distance which was understandable but it never spoiled a thing.
