The Isle of Harris, located in the Outer Hebrides archipelago on Scotland’s west coast, is one of our favourite places in Scotland. The north of the island is hilly and rugged, and all around the coastline are a string of pristine white sand beaches just waiting to be discovered. The wild landscapes and rich seas of Harris make ideal homes for birds and marine wildlife. This blend of scenery, combined with the turquoise waters and ever-changing light makes Harris the perfect island getaway for adventurous families and groups to explore.
From exhilarating days walking amongst the peaks to picture-perfect coastal walks and historic treks on the ancient ‘coffin roads’, you will be captivated by the Island’s charms. For cyclists, Harris also offers fantastic road riding if you wish to explore by bike.
There is plenty of free time to explore as well and the neighbouring islands also make for great day trips. To the north, and connected to Harris by a land-bridge, Lewis is home to the truly magnificent Callanish Standing Stones, as well as many other fascinating sites and beautiful walks. Head south and take a ferry to North Uist, which is a haven for wildlife, boasts unique landscapes and intriguing prehistoric sites.
The combination of activities led by a local guide, along with free time on your own to explore the islands, makes for a fantastic and memorable holiday – perfect for families and groups of friends.
