New research by the Hebridean Whale and Dolphin Trust - a charity which aims to improve the understanding of the Hebridean marine environment through research and conservation - reveals thriving communities of whales, dolphins and porpoises in the Hebrides. Now the charity is now looking for volunteers to help continue its research.

Wildlife tourism in the Scottish Hebrides has received a boost thanks to a major grant from the Government’s Coastal Communities Fund to develop a community based ecotourism scheme. Conservation charity Hebridean Whale and Dolphin Trust (HWDT) has been awarded £120,000 from the Government’s Coastal Communities Fund enabling it to launch an ecotourism project in 15 island communities across the Hebrides.

Mountain Biking: The Hebridean Trail, Scotland

This fantastic 7-day mountain biking adventure will take travellers to one of Europe's last remaining wildernesses - the Outer Hebrides. Known as the 'Hebridean Trail', this 280km mountain bike adventure explores no less than seven separate islands via a collection of rugged paths, by-ways, mountain trails and secluded roads. Without a doubt, the highlight of this trip is the freedom with which you'll explore the beautiful landscape, possibly encountering local wildlife and exploring the 5000 years of human history in the area.

Over the seven day period you'll ride around 35-70km a day, beginning with an exploration of the Islands of North and South Uist before catching the ferry across the Sound of Harris to Leverburgh. One of the true highlights has to be your day exploring the Isle of Lewis where you'll combine mountain biking with trips on a RIB boat that takes you out to the otherwise unreachable west coast of Harris and the Isle of Lewis itself.
