Activities

Just a few of the many and varied things to do on the Islands, and we haven’t even mentioned Walking, Birdwatching, Climbing, or just plain exploring and relaxing.

Our Hebrides has numerous walks for all fitness levels. You can take a Sea Safari and go whale and dolphin spotting.  Keen birdwatchers can try their luck at spotting the rare corncrake, or more common is the Golden Eagle and now Sea Eagles.  Summer is a time of festivals and fun, it is also the time when the wildflowers bloom on the Machair, rare wild orchids and delicate flowers create a sea of colour across the sand dunes.

Surfing & Water Sports
Suring Isle of Lewis

With almost no protection from the full force of the Atlantic, the west coast of the Isle of Lewis is a surfers dream. With a regular influx of visitors and plenty of surfing equipment and tuition available then there is plenty of opportunities for the water sports fans to get wet. If surfing isn’t to your taste then other water activities include canoeing, kayaking and diving.

Fishing
Fishing on Lewis and Harris

The Hebrides remains one of the best places for fishing in the UK, with Trout and Salmon being in plentiful supply and over 2000 fishable lochs to choose from then there should be plenty of spots for the keen fisherman. If sea angling is more to your taste then boating trips are regularly available as part of a group or even charter a boat if you desire the more personal experience.
