Tour Description

Day 1


North to Lewis and Harris...

Your first day takes you to Dunrobin Castle* the most northerly of Scotland's great houses and home of the Earls and Dukes of Sutherland.  Here you can also enjoy a falconry display and a walk in its beautiful gardens.  Then you will discover Knockan Crag Nature National Reserve and learn about one of the oldest landscapes in Europe.  Your journey through the Sutherland area will then take you on to the beautiful seaside town of Ullapool, where you catch the ferry to the Isle of Lewis and Harris.

Overnight:  Stornoway

Day 2

Ancient history and traditional tweed...

Picturesque Stornoway is the largest settlement in the Western Isles and your base for exploring the Island of Lewis and Harris. After you've explored the town, you'll head to the far north of the island to visit the Butt of Lewis lighthouse (the windiest place in the UK). The day also features visits to the ancient Callanish Standing Stones and Carloway Broch, an exceptionally well-preserved Iron Age structure located above Loch an Duin. You'll also have a chance to stroll some of the island's stunning beaches and find out more about Harris Tweed cloth when you visit a traditional weaver.

Overnight:  Stornoway

Day 3

Castaways and coastal splendour...

Day three gives you the chance to explore Harris, which is the southern part of the island. First you'll visit the main port, Tarbert, then you'll travel a little west to look across the beautiful Sound of Taransay to the island made famous by the BBC's Castaway programme. Here you'll have the chance to stroll along what is arguably Harris' most beautiful beach, Lusekentyre. The day ends as you wave goodbye to the island, take the ferry back to mainland and return to Inverness.

Tour Reviews

 
I was sold the moment James greeted us and started his tour with us. He has such a lovely personality and sold me on Scotland as the best place to visit in the world. It was the most wonderful tour ever. He was exceptional and even when I return to Scotland, I fear no one will never match up to his standards. I think his tour was unsurpassed. My grandson was even captivated by James stories and tour stops which says a tremendous amount in James favour considering how difficult it is to keep a 16 year old captivated!

We really enjoyed our 3 day tour of the Outer Hebrides in Scotland. The bus sat 16 so it was a nice small group. The bus had WiFi and plug ins for our phones which helped a lot when you are taking pictures all day and needed to recharge the battery. The landscape was very beautiful and really made you appreciate the contrasting scenery in Scotland. Our guide Fergus was very helpful and informative and seemed to really enjoy the area as well. I felt safe even on the windy mountain roads as he was an excellent driver. On a tour this long you really needed to feel well cared for by your tour guide and we did!

Excellent Tour impressive landscape, friendly group, I have seen a lot I have to come back to Lewis and Harris! Greetings to Fergie.

( Gettkowski Engel – September 2017)


I can’t tell you how much we enjoyed this tour. Our guide, Fergie was wonderful and we were able to learn many things we would not have without his knowledge of the area. I certainly recommend this to anyone. We will definitely go back someday.
