      The Outer Hebrides and St Kilda

      The Outer Hebrides, also known as the Western Isles, are one of Scotland’s best kept secrets for active travel, such as walking, hiking, road cycling and mountain biking.

      Outer Hebrides and St Kilda

      There is no better place to experience the combination of pristine scenery, intriguing culture and a way of life which doesn’t seem to have been caught up in the hustle and bustle of the 21st century.

      A landscape of such outstanding beauty merges with megalithic history in a place where English is the second language. Together this makes a cultural omelette on the western edge of Europe that is a firm favourite with our travellers. In recognition of these outstanding elements, National Geographic included our Outer Hebrides and Skye walking trip in their Top 50 Tours of a Lifetime.

      Things to see and do in the Outer Hebrides:

      • Explore the beauty of Luskentyre beach and many others – The Outer Hebrides is famous for its amazing beaches full of white sand and tropical turquoise waters
      • Visit the historic Standing stones of Callanish – An astonishing structure that predates Stonehenge by approximately 2,000 years
      • Hike to the scenic Eilean Glas Lighthouse located on the Isle of Scalpay – a location that could only be accessed by boat until a bridge was opened in 1997
      • Join us on Eriskay – the location of the renowned book and movies: Whisky Galore
      • Take a day boat trip to St Kilda – a once in a lifetime opportunity to visit a stunning UNESCO World Heritage site

      The journey to St Kilda is not an easy one. However, for the adventurously-minded traveller, the remoteness, extraordinary scenery, human and natural history all contribute to make a visit to these islands unquestionably an experience of a lifetime. If you are interested in visiting St Kilda, we can arrange this as part of a tailor made trip.

      in your own words

      One of the best trips we've ever done. For me, perhaps the most inspirational moment was the shared sense of awe as we paddled across Loch Sionascaig with the amphitheatre of mountains around us on a brilliant day. Thank you Kirk, Laura and all the team.
