Exploring the Outer Isles Special Offer

Plockton is a beautiful conservation village on the bay of Loch Carron with glorious walks. Majestic Corrieshalloch Gorge enjoys stunning views of the surrounding countryside, and from the Victorian suspension bridge you can observe the cascading waterfalls below.

Crossing The Minch, the exploration of the Outer Isles begins on Lewis where the ancient standing stones of Callanish and the well-preserved Carloway Broch await. The museum at Lews Castle offers an insight into the history and culture of the Outer Hebrides. The lowlying bird haven of North Uist is a world apart from the softer, undulating landscapes and dune-fringed beaches of South Uist. A morning steam over the Sea of the Hebrides leads to Muck, the smallest of the Small Isles, for invigorating walks ashore.
