Walking Western Isles Wilderness

Highlights: deserted white sand beaches on Harris; hills of North Harris including Huiseabhal Mor, Tiorga Mor and An Clisham, the highest peak in the Western Isles; chances to see golden eagles and otters; views of Britain's largest overhanging cliff; the machair; the 12th Century church of St Clements; a visit to the famous Callanish Stoners and see an Iron Age broch.

Western Isles Wilderness is a hiking trip with a definitive sense of place and culture. Harris is the home of some strong Scottish traditions (like the making of Tweed - long the fabric favoured by outdoor enthusiasts, Sherlock Holmes and the shooting industry) and a wonderful well-preserved ancient history, examples of which are prevalent throughout both Harris and Lewis. We'll also have the opportunity to experience some of the best cuisine the islands have to offer at one of the top quality local restaurants.
