Lewis and Harris are the perfect places for a peaceful island escape. But hold up - there's plenty to see and do in between all that relaxing you've got planned!

Explore the Gaelic heartland of Stornoway, where you can discover the culture and traditions of Hebridean island communities at museums and attractions. See Harris Tweed, a woollen fabric which is as luxurious as it is hardwearing, being made in a time-honoured method.

Days can be filled with quiet strolls along deserted beaches of pristine white sands, standing in awe of ancient standing stones, taking a boat trip, or heading out with an island guide to see and learn more about the remarkable geography and stories of these islands.

Perhaps you'll fancy trying a few coastal activities, such as kayaking and surfing, or discover whisky and gin-making secrets at the new Isle of Harris Distillery?
