The Location

Off the west coast of Scotland, the Isle of Lewis and Isle of Harris form the main island in the Outer Hebrides. They may sound like two separate islands, but Lewis and Harris are actually two parts of the one island, with the largest town Stornoway on the east coast.

With dramatic landscapes, a unique Gaelic culture and fascinating history, this is a great place for your Hebridean adventure. You will be blown away by wild mountains, immense white beaches, rugged coastlines and lunar landscapes.

From ancient thatched blackhouses to thrilling outdoor activities and superb food, there are plenty of things to do on the Isle of Lewis and Isle of Harris. There are many more adventures to have as you head south to the other Hebridean islands along the famous Hebridean Way.

Harris – Most of Harris is very hilly with more than thirty peaks above 1,000 ft.

Lewis – Lewis is comparatively flat, save in the south-east, where Ben More reaches 1,874 ft and in the south-west where Mealasbhal 1,885 ft is the highest point.
