The Hebrides are wild. Imagine bright green isles, rough rocks and cliffs and a stone cottage here and there. It’s exactly as you imagine Scotland to be.

The Inner Hebrides are visited the most, and Skye in particular is popular thanks to its wondrous rock formations.

It’s a perfect place for walking. But there are also many other islands here, with fantastic names. For example: Raasay, Scalpay, Rona and smaller islands such as Canna, Eigg, Fladda-chùain, Gaeilavore, Am Bord, Thon Eilean, Gearran, Muck, Rum, Soay, Stac a’ Mheadais and Trodday.

The Outer Hebrides are over 218 thousand hectares and include Lewis and Harris, which are actually one island. Other islands here are Taransay, North Uist, Benbecula, South Uist, Barra and Saint Kilda.

How do I get there?
You can fly to Stornoway on the Outer Hebrides and then drive across the bridge to the Inner Hebrides. There are also ferries between the island.
