Tour Description

We're super excited to offer this itinerary around the Outer Hebrides for 2020! 

We're picking a time that usually has reasonably settled weather which is main thing required to make the crossing to St Kilda and the surrounding islands. This location is a lot more exposed than the inner isles so we're planning a longer tour to make sure we have enough time for a reasonable weather window.

This is around the main time of basking sharks arrival to the outer islands, so we also have great chances of encounters with basking sharks! There are also large seal colonies, resident bottlenose dolphins, deep water close to shore for larger whales and many islands of seabirds! 

Fri 22nd May- Travel to Barra (own accommodation this night)

Sat - Fri - 7 activity days & 7 night self catering accommodation

Sat 30th May- depart.
