The great outdoors
Where else would one like to experience the great outdoors but here in the Outer Hebrides. With wonderful landscapes it offers an abundance of opportunities for walkers; from hill walking and coastal walks in some of Scotland's most stunning scenery to moorland walks that offer some of the most challenging terrain in the country.
For wildlife the islands will not disappoint. Here you will find a natural wildlife park surrounding you. Otters, red deer, golden eagles and buzzards, to name but a few, are readily seen in their natural environment; the White-tailed Eagle, along with many other rare birds, has also been sighted. Coupled with the spectacular scenery around you the experience of Hebridean wildlife is one to remember.
Some of the other outdoors activities available are; Horse Riding, Canoeing, Go-Karting, Surfing, Sea Angling, Island Tours & Cruises, Cycling, Rock Climbing and Shooting.
The Hebrides offer some of the most interesting sites of historical interest in the country.
