Discover the 'Islands on the Edge' with a three day Outer Hebrides private tour from Inverness exploring the stunning landscapes, dramatic coastlines and the breath-taking scenery that the Isle of Lewis and Isle of Harris have to offer.

Day 1 - An early start from Inverness to the coastal village of Ullapool where we board the ferry for a 2½ hour journey across the Minch to the Isle of Lewis and its main town of Stornoway (my native town). From there we spend the afternoon exploring the magnificent Neolithic Callanish Standing Stones, the 2000 year old Dun Carloway Broch and a traditional Hebridean blackhouse. We finish the day at the beautiful Atlantic coastal beach of Dalbeg before our return to Stornoway for our overnight stay.

Day 2 - Departing from Stornoway we head south to the Isle of Harris. The drive along the Atlantic coastline of Harris includes the stunning beach at Luskentyre. We visit Rodel to explore the beautiful medieval St Clement’s church, home to one of Scotland's most remarkable 16th century tombs. The late afternoon takes us back to Tarbert (home of Harris Tweed and Isle of Harris distillery) before we return north to Stornoway for our overnight stop.

Day 3 - We spend the morning on the Isle of Lewis, heading west then north on a journey towards the Butt of Lewis - the most northerly point in the Hebrides - for the dramatic views of the cliffs and the Atlantic sea. We then return to Stornoway where we have some free time to explore the town. The afternoon ferry (where we have a late lunch) takes us back to Ullapool and then it is a final drive through wonderful Highland scenery to Inverness.
