Described as one of Britain’s last remaining wildernesses, the Outer Hebrides is the ideal setting for an active adventure. Surrounded by crashing waves the region is a surfers’ paradise, with some of the least crowded beaches in Europe. In the more tranquil waters of the sea lochs, sea kayaking is the perfect way to explore the many nooks and crannies of the Hebridean coast; delve into caves or investigate some of the many impressive sea stacks.
Cast a line in some of the best waters for salmon and trout fishing in the country. If you’re looking for a bigger challenge, take a chartered boat trip for the chance to catch common skate.
Back on dry land cycling is a fantastic way to get around the many islands and to explore the many fascinating sites, stunning scenery and wildlife found within the region. Peddle along some interesting routes and up some daunting hills to be rewarded with jaw-dropping views over the region.
Pack a backpack, put on your hiking boots and take a walk on some stunning walking routes throughout the Outer Hebridean islands. Whether you are looking for a short stroll or a day’s hike, there are many routes to follow each with their own rewarding scenery to admire.
You can even play Scotland’s national game on some of the most unusual, yet beautiful golf courses in the country.
Whatever you choose to do, make your active trip to the Outer Hebrides an unforgettable one.
