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.
