Fish, golf, walk, birdwatch, ponytrek, sail, surf, kayak, botanize the machair - lots to do in the Western Isles - so overcome that temptation just to sit and watch the waves.
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.
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.
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.
