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
Day 4 - Coastal Town and Nature walk
Day 5 - End of Tour and transport to airport
Today is the day we all depart and depending on when the plane is leaving we have a relaxed time enjoying the final views of these islands.
While we strive to deliver everything that is in our itinerary, there are occasions when in the Outer Hebrides we may need to cancel boat trips or other activities at short notice owing to the weather. While this is unfortunate it is part of the course and we will do our utmost to reschedule or find an alternative activity to replace it.
