Cycle or walk part of the Hebridean Way, a sign posted path: Pedal your way along stunning coastal paths, or choose to Western Isles MTB trails over mountain and moor – with each one of our amazing islands offering an exciting, enriching Outer Hebrides cycling or walking experience.

Cutting across the moor from Leverburgh, I reach the crest of the pass and my first ‘wow’ moment. Beaches and dunes merge into one another, as though I'm gazing at a slightly out of focus picture. To the south are the sands of Northton, a township also known by its Gaelic name of Taobh Tuath. The tide has receded to conjoin the beaches right through to the hamlet of Scarasta to the north, where the dunes wobble out at 90 degrees towards the sea, the grass on their ridges creating the appearance of a giant caterpillar. From the ground up, the colour scheme is sensational: strips of green, yellow, blue and the metallic shades of the brooding Harris hills. Piping oystercatchers and lapwings engaged in spiralling aerial battles criss-cross this canvas. - See more at: http://www.ramblers.org.uk/news/walk-magazine/current-issue/2015/august/autumn-2015/rrid-hebridean-way.aspx#sthash.BGqQoXk9.dpuf

St. Kilda Cruises Kilda Cruises

The archipelago of St Kilda, the remotest part of the British Isles, lies 41 miles (66 kilometres) west of Benbecula in Scotland's Outer Hebrides.

Its islands with their exceptional cliffs and sea stacs form the most important seabird breeding station in north-west Europe. The evacuation of its native population in 1930 brought to a close an extraordinary story of survival.

Today, three organisations, The National Trust for ScotlandScottish Natural Heritage and the MoD, work in partnership to further a continuing programme of conservation and research on the islands to ensure the care and protection of this World Heritage Site.
