My Favourites

Cycling

With wide views of open beaches and lush machair, big skies and rolling moors, cycling through the islands is an exhilarating experience. Inter-island causeways and good ferry connections make route planning easy.

Cycle Hire in the Western Isles

Walking

There are miles of empty beaches and rugged coastline to traverse, as well as moorland walks and treks through the hills of Harris and south Uist. If you need inspiration, then check out some walking guides.

Surfing & Watersports

The Outer Hebrides are world-class for surfers, thanks to the consistent surf conditions on open beaches. The spectacular coastline makes it superb for sea-kayaking too.

Fishing in the Western Isles »

A true wilderness landscape that appears to contain more water than land, islands where the angler is spoilt for choice, lochs, small rivers and of course an immense coastline. On one side lies the Atlantic and on the other the prolific waters of the Minch.

Great Golf »

The Western Isles are an inspiring place to play golf with five distinctive courses between the Isle of Lewis in the north and Barra in the south.
