The Outer Hebrides and Skye Walking Holiday – in Pictures!
Posted on Jul 26, 2016 by Meike van Krimpen
Recently I was lucky enough to embark on our Outer Hebrides and Skye trip with my parents. It was an incredible opportunity to show off the wild and beautiful country I fell in love with 7 years ago to my family. I hope that despite the typically Scottish weather, they saw the magic too ;)
Working at Wilderness Scotland, I’ve spent a lot of time knowing about this trip. Yet none of this prepared me for the sheer beauty of the Outer Hebrides and Skye. The delicious food. The funny things that just happen with a group of strangers travelling together. The Atlantic weather constantly keeping us on our toes and the dramatic scenery completing it all.
It’s inspired me to try my best to share the magic of this trip. Combining the best pictures from my recent adventures and from trips gone past, this photo blog will highlight the amazing places we visit on the Outer Hebrides and Skye trip. Enjoy!

PLEASE REMEMBER: This blog shows you some of the stunning places on the Outer Hebrides and Isle of Skye trip you may see. You will see many of these, and also some not pictured, but not all of these locations! Our trips are very dependent on group abilities, the weather and the fact that there is only so much you can do in a day. However, this should give you a good taste for what you can expect on your upcoming adventure :)
