On this trip we sample all the main islands (except Barra), walking on the beaches, cliff coast and small hills of Lewis, Harris, North & South Uist and the smaller islands of Berneray and Eriskay. Golden Eagles, otters and seals are all common here, while the diving Gannets are always impressive.

We start on Harris, the most mountainous island, where the beaches of Husinish, Meilen and Cravadale are linked by a dramatic path. On Lewis we visit the famed stone circle at Callanish before walking the jagged cliff coast around the restored Black House village at Gearranan.
We get the chance to see Harris Tweed woven in a crofter’s cottage before taking the ferry to North Uist and walking the long sweeping beach and small grassy hills of Berneray.

On North Uist itself the rocky knuckle of Crogary Mor gives an amazing view over the unique jigsaw of land and water that makes up the centre of the island; Loch Scadavay is only 8km long but has 100km of coast! A stroll along the beaches of Vallay & Udal provides a relaxing end to the day. From South Uist we cross the causeway to Eriskay, famed both as the spot where Bonnie Prince Charlie landed in 1745 at the start of his adventure, and in the 20th Century for the wreck of the SS Politician, which sparked off the events lightly fictionalised in the book and film Whisky Galore.
On the Friday we visit the chambered Cairn at Barpa Langass before catching the ferry to Skye for the scenic drive to Inverness.
The first three nights of the holiday we stay in the Harris Hotel. This characteristic hotel has lots of atmosphere, friendly staff & superb food. The other three nights are spent in a guesthouse on the Isle of North Uist, where you can be sure of a warm & friendly welcome. (Details will be confirmed closer to the departure date. We might have to split the group over two accommodations depending how the bookings are coming in).

Walking Grade
The emphasis is on a leisurely pace with time to observe and interpret the area, its history and wildlife. We usually spend up 5 to 6 hours walking up to 10 miles (16 km). Gradients are generally easy and much of the walking is on paths, although these can be rough in places. Basic fitness required.
