Wild about the Hebrides
Our new four-night adventure will take you on a real journey of discovery through the hidden Hebrides and to secluded locations for a truly wild experience. We get close to wildlife, hike through stunning coastline routes and discover the heartbeat of these islands through meeting the local people. From your first moment, we step back into the history of more than six thousand years to unravel the fascinating journeys of previous settlers to these remote islands.
Wild about the Hebrides
The wild Atlantic coast of the Outer Hebrides is something to behold. This is a place of intense beauty and more than 100 islands. The west coast is framed with stunning powder-white beaches, lush fertile plains called machair while the east coast is more rugged and filled with moor, peat hags and numerous lochs and lochans. In the summer these islands are teeming with wildlife, offshore islands have more than a million seabirds, machair is filled with wading birds and the moorlands echo with the cry of the eagle, dunlin and numerous other birds. This short adventure is for those who are seeking something special and a chance to get close to wildlife and explore some of the remoter parts of the Hebrides.

Day 1- Arrival Day (Lewis)
Day 2 - A Taste of Freedom
Our day begins with a short drive around the local vicinity down narrow roads and onto the Atlantic edge. We step out onto glorious beaches and for the brave dip our toes into the refreshing waters that bathe these islands. We then make our way for our morning adventure and a scenic boat trip around the area. We look out for sea eagles, otters and wild seals and other seabirds on this beautiful private journey. Our local guide will give you a wealth of knowledge on this unique environment and how local people have interacted with nature here for thousands of years.
On our return, we will toast our adventure before we head for included lunch in a local eatery.
The afternoon sees us taking to the coastlines and heading out to view some of the most dramatic seascapes in the Outer Hebrides before returning to our accommodation and some free time to explore at your leisure this tranquil setting.
Day 3 - Call of the Wild - Lewis & Harris
Today and weather permitting we head back to the ocean and board our private vessel for a dramatic sail along the coastline of Lewis and Harris to our deserted island and a chance to become a castaway for a day. Meander through deserted villages and past abandoned homes where once music, laughter and the Gaelic language was heard daily. Wander high into the hills and take in the dramatic views that are truly breathtaking.
Picnic lunch on the island
Following lunch, more free time to wander at your leisure before we make our way back along the coastline and into a dramatic sea loch created during the last ice age some twelve thousand years ago. We then make our way back to our accommodation and have a small tipple of local gin to toast another. wonderful day
