North to Lewis and Harris...
This wonderful Highland and Island tour starts with a drive through spectacular Highland scenery to the beautiful seaside town of Ullapool, where you catch the ferry to the Isle of Lewis and Harris. Along the way you'll stop off for two excursions. The first involves a short woodland walk to the impressive Rogie Falls, the second a visit to the breathtaking Corrieshalloch Gorge. Standing on the footbridge above this deep chasm is a truly breathtaking experience.
Ancient history and traditional tweed...
Picturesque Stornoway is the largest settlement in the Western Isles and your base for exploring the Island of Lewis and Harris. After you've explored the town, you'll head to the far north of the island to visit the Butt of Lewis lighthouse (the windiest place in the UK). The day also features visits to the ancient Callanish Standing Stones* and Carloway Broch*, an exceptionally well-preserved Iron Age structure located above Loch an Duin. You'll also have a chance to stroll some of the island's stunning beaches and find out more about Harris Tweed cloth when you visit a traditional weaver.
Castaways and coastal splendour...
Day three gives you the chance to explore Harris, which is the southern part of the island. First you'll visit the main port, Tarbert, then you'll travel a little west to look across the beautiful Sound of Taransay to the island made famous by the BBC's Castaway programme. Here you'll have the chance to stroll along what is arguably Harris' most beautiful beach, Lusekentyre. The day ends as you wave goodbye to the island, take the ferry back to mainland and return to Inverness at approx 19.00.
