Tour Details

Join us on this adventure to the wild Hebrides – the inspiring islands of Skye, Harris and Lewis.

Stand atop rugged peaks looking down upon perfect white sand beaches skirting the sea and across to the many smaller isles which dot the horizon.

The Hebrides are among the wildest and most beautiful islands anywhere in Europe. On this walking holiday your knowledgeable guide will provide a fascinating insight into the rich tapestry of island life, history and geology. They can also help you spot wildlife – perhaps including golden eagles, white tailed sea eagles, basking sharks, whales and dolphins, as well helping you identify the rich flora of the islands found in the famous coastal ‘machairs’ or flower meadows. With charming accommodation and delicious food, this award winning trip provides a memorable insight into the wild and beautiful Hebrides.

What to Expect

  • Group Size: Maximum 8
  • Top vertical 450 m
  • Average walks: 5 hours

This trip is graded moderate. Our moderate graded walking holidays involve straightforward hiking, following generally good trails with no major ascents. These walks are pretty leisurely and will last for around 5 hours each day. The terrain underfoot will usually be on paths or hill trails, which may still be muddy or rough in places. The daily walks are mainly glen and coastal hikes, with some ascents of low level hills, up to around 1,500 feet / 450m high.

Day 1Travel to Skye, afternoon walk in Glen Sligachan

Meeting in Inverness, we travel south west past Loch Ness and the stunning Eilean Donan Castle in Kintail before arriving on the Isle of Skye. We spend our first afternoon enjoying a wonderful walk in Glen Sligachan beneath the mighty peaks of the Black Cuillin and the Red Cuillin, which flank either side of the glen. Returning to our vehicle, we transfer to our waterside inn on the Waternish Peninsula of Skye. (L, D)

Day 2Quirang and the Old Man of Storr

After enjoying breakfast with sea views, we set out to explore the stark and unusual landscapes of the Quiraing and the Old Man of Storr on foot. We will also visit Kilt Rock and the charming village of Staffin on this relaxing day. (B, L)…

Day 3Travel to the Isle of Harris

We enjoy a short coastal walk before taking the afternoon ferry from Skye to the Isle of Harris in the Outer Hebrides, looking out for seabirds and dolphins on the 90 minute crossing. On arrival on Harris, we visit the wonderful beaches of Luskintyre and Sheileboist before arriving at our guest house in time to freshen up before dinner. (B, L)…

Day 4Glens and Beaches of North Harris

North Harris is one of the most spectacular areas of the Outer Hebrides. We spend the day exploring the glens and beaches, perhaps visiting the white sands of Huisinis or hiking into the glens to see the massive cliffs of Sron Uladal. A wonderful day whichever route we choose! (B, L)….

Day 5The Machair of Harris and the Golden Road

Today we walk on the ‘machair’ of Harris, the Gaelic name for the coastal hinterland which in summer is a carpet of wild flowers. We climb Toe Head (365m), high above beach of Traigh Scarasta, from where St. Kilda can be sometimes be seen jutting out of the Atlantic horizon. We then complete a circuit of southern Harris as we drive back north via the ’Golden Road’, stopping at 15th century Rodel Church and other places along the way. (B, L)…

Day 6Walking Circuit of Scalpay

This tiny island is located off the east coast of Harris and is now connected to Harris by a bridge, which opened in 1997, with the first person to cross being 103-year old Mrs Kirsty Morrison. We’ll enjoy a fine circumnavigation of the island, exploring its wonderful coastline and visiting the remote lighthouse at Rubh an Eorna (B, L, D).

Day 7 Callanish Standing Stones; return to Inverness

After breakfast, we journey north to Lewis, where we visit the 5000 year old Callanish Standing Stones, which date back to 3000BC. Set high on a moor with a backdrop of sea and mountains, this is a moving experience for many and a fine place to end this island odyssey. Leaving the stones behind, we continue to Stornoway where we take the ferry back to the mainland and transfer back to Inverness. (B, L)…..
