Exploring the Outer Hebrides islands from your holiday cottage in Scotland

Discover incredible wildlife and nature...
Outdoor enthusiasts will find plenty of opportunities for adventure, including hiking, cycling and birdwatching. For some of the best walking on the Scottish isles, head to the Isle of Lewis to explore the dramatic coastal scenery of the Butt of Lewis, the northernmost point in the Outer Hebrides. Feel the power of the North Atlantic crash against the craggy rocks far below and watch the sun rise and set here. If you are lucky enough, in the late Autumn and winter you might even catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights. The Outer Hebrides is a haven for wildlife, from seals and otters to rare bird species. Embark on wildlife tours, spot dolphins and whales in the surrounding waters, or simply revel in the solitude and natural splendour that surrounds you. These islands are a safe haven for many birds of prey, particularly for the Golden Eagle, which lives and thrives here. The North Harris Eagle Observatory on the Isle of Harris is an excellent place to spot one. Patience is needed, but the views alone make it worthwhile. Our Outer Hebrides cottages are equipped with top-notch facilities and situated in ideal locations for exploring the incredible local nature and wildlife.

Embrace proud local culture and history...
The islands here are steeped in history and culture, with a huge influence from Celtic and Norse cultures. Explore ancient standing stones, traditional blackhouses, and well-preserved Iron Age structures like the awe-inspiring Callanish Standing Stones on the Isle of Lewis. Immerse yourself in the Gaelic language, music and traditional arts, and connect with the locals in friendly communities. Fishing, farming and traditional crafts like weaving and pottery all play an important role in shaping the unique character of the islands and are still prevalent today. The Outer Hebrides also has a great food and drinks scene, with local delights like fresh Scottish salmon, Harris Tweed Coffee, Stornoway Black Pudding and Barra Oysters. Our self catering accommodation gives you the freedom to dine out in local restaurants, pubs and cafes, or buy fresh produce and create flavourful dishes in the comfort of your home away from home.

Explore stunning sandy beaches and spectacular scenery...
With numerous islands covering vast stretches of coastline, the Outer Hebrides is home to some incredible sandy beaches, offering stunning sea views across the Atlantic and to the surrounding islands. You'd be forgiven for thinking you were in the Caribbean, surrounded by the white sands, high dunes and turquoise waters of these world-class beaches. Some of the most popular beaches in the Outer Hebrides include Luskentyre Beach (Traigh Losgaintir) on the west coast of Harris, Vatersay Beach (Traigh Mhor) on the island of Vatersay, and Clachan Sands on North Uist. Enjoy a romantic sunset stroll along the shore, pack a picnic for a fun family day out or simply sit back and soak up the peaceful ambience and great views. Many of our coastal Outer Hebrides cottages are within walking distance of these mesmerising shores, offering a relaxing island break by the sea.
