The Hebridean Summer

The Hebridean Summer

There is no better time of year to visit the Outer Hebrides than the long, light filled days of summer.
From the end of March to through September we are blessed with daylight - even if the weather is variable - the light will stay with us from the early dawn well into the late evening. There is a surreal quality to high summer in the Hebrides, many of our visitors comment on it when first arriving on our shores, the night never really descends, instead a mysterious twilight dominates the night-time.
One client who visited last year commented: "i can't belive how beautiful it is, who knew Scotland could be like this?". Of course these long days of summer give visitors plenty of time to explore our shores, see the sights and explore our glorious beaches - you may have to wrap up warmly, but our beaches are some of the best in the world!
We offer the ultimate tour of the Hebrides, with half day, full day and 2 day options, covering the Butt of Lewis at Ness, the West Side with its magnificent heritage sites and beaches, through the wilds of Harris and onto the islands of Uist down to Barra.
Take a trip to the Islands, coming by ferry (where you might be lucky and spot some of the local marine wildlife such as porpoises and dolphins), or by air with a dramatic descent over the sea, giving a great panorama of the local landscape.
With the ancient language of Gaelic spoken in the street the unique heritage and culture of the Hebrides offers something unique for the holidaymaker whether from Britain or abroad. Wildlife, fantastic fishing, several golf courses, historic sites, world class surf, the iconic Harris Tweed and famous Stornoway Black Pudding are some of the attractions that make a break to the Hebrides a special occasion.
