For such a compact geographical area, the Outer Hebrides supports an amazing range of different habitats, each with their accompanying native or visiting wildlife.

As one of the last great wilderness regions in the UK, the Hebrides is an important area for conservation and includes within its boundaries the dual UNESCO World Heritage Site of St Kilda together with numerous Sites of Special Scientific Interest, National Scenic Areas, and National Nature Reserves.  These sites make ideal spots to experience and enjoy the incredible range of species to be found here.
