The Outer Hebrides - exploring Harris on foot

© Scot Mountain Holidays

Isle of Harris

Western Isles Wilderness

The wildest & most sensational mountain walking! An all inclusive holiday with a rich mix of wildlife, culture & incredibly beautiful scenery

Highlights: deserted white sand beaches on Harris; hills of North Harris including Huiseabhal Mor, Tiorga Mor and An Clisham, the highest peak in the Western Isles; chances to see golden eagles and otters; views of Britain’s largest overhanging cliff; the flowering machair; the 12th Century church of St Clements; a visit to the jewel in Scotland,s prehistoric crown, the 3000 year old Callanish Standing Stones and an Iron Age broch.

Western Isles Wilderness is a hiking trip with a strong sense of place and culture. Harris is the home of some strong Scottish traditions (like the making of Tweed – long the fabric favoured by field sports enthusiasts, the fashion industry and of course Sherlock Holmes) and a wonderful well-preserved ancient and more recent history, examples of which are prevalent throughout both Harris and Lewis. We’ll also have the opportunity to experience some of the best cuisine the islands have to offer on our night out at one of the top quality local restaurants.
