Holidays in the Outer Hebrides, Scotland

It’s Europe’s last wilderness. Made up of over two hundred islands this matchless archipelago only has a handful of these are inhabited. Steeped in Celtic lore and a harsh beauty the Outer Hebrides is the heartland of Gaelic culture with the majority of its inhabitants speaking Gaelic as their mother tongue. The sea is ever present and it’s a perfect place to fish for salmon and trout: its pollution free waters offer the best seafood in the UK. The deserted of Island of St Kilda would capture anyone’s imagination: the remotest part of the British Isles, it has exceptional cliffs and sea stacs that make it the most important seabird breeding station in north-west Europe.
