Itinerary

Day 1Inverness - Stornoway

You don’t waste time on this tour. You get up early, travel straight from Inverness to Ullapool and catch your ferry to the islands.

This stunning sea-trip takes you along Loch Broom, past the Summer Isles, and out to Stornoway; capital of the Outer Hebrides. But don’t let the waves rock you to sleep; because if you keep a look out you might spot a dolphin or a whale. Once you’ve arrived on Lewis, your first stop is the ancient past. You travel to the North West of the island and get the chance to visit the ‘blackhouse’ at Arnol. Dive into this traditional abode and discover how the Highland crofting families lived their day-to-day lives.

After this, you go through more crofting communities and venture to the northernmost tip of the island, the Butt of Lewis. The lighthouse here boasts epic views of waves crashing against sea cliffs.

It’s now time to head back to Stornoway for your overnight.

Day 2Stornoway

Today, you’re heading south to Harris.

The first thing you notice about Harris are the mountains. And as you weave through the towering marvels, your guide will tell you about the traditions and tales of this part of Scotland.

There’s not many towns around here; but after you’ve had your fill of unspoilt beaches and landscapes, you stop in the small port of Leverburgh for lunch.

Now it’s time for one of the great Hebridean highlights, Luskentyre beach. On a good day, the sea turns turquoise and the sands look pristine white.

After you’ve enjoyed all these natural wonders, it’s time to head back to Stornoway. Maybe it’s time to try the famous black pudding for dinner. (B)

Day 3Stornoway - Inverness

Today, you’re delving back to the ancient past.

You venture to the far west of Lewis to the parish of Uig, an area of outstanding natural beauty.

More than 800 years ago, the Vikings lived here and left behind an icon of Scotland, the Lewis Chessmen.

And now what you’ve been waiting for, the Callanish standing stones. These 5,000-year-old megaliths are said to be petrified giants who wouldn’t convert to Christianity. You may not believe this myth, but that doesn’t mean this sight isn’t magnificent.

We have a lunch in Stornoway before crossing back to the mainland returning to Inverness in the evening. (B)
