Lewis & Harris

Day 1

North to Lewis and Harris..

Your first day takes you to Dunrobin Castle* the most northerly of Scotland's great houses and home of the Earls and Dukes of Sutherland. Here you can also enjoy a falconry display and a walk in its beautiful gardens. Then you will discover Knockan Crag Nature National Reserve and learn about one of the oldest landscapes in Europe. Your journey through the Sutherland area will then take you on to the beautiful seaside town of Ullapool, where you catch the ferry to the Isle of Lewis and Harris.

Overnight: Stornoway

Day 2

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.

Overnight: Stornoway

Day 3

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.
