Carved out of some of the oldest rock in the world, the Outer Hebrides lie at the most North Westerly point in Europe.
Stark moorland, glistening lochs, rugged hills, white sand beaches and crystal clear waters make up the diverse and dramatic scenery of the Islands. Bursting with world famous archaeological sites, Lewis is the largest and most populous of the Islands, and holds the Neolithic Callanish Stones', the Pictish Carloway Broch and numerous Norse mills. Uig is stuffed full of archaeology and we can happily send you off on a cycle tour of famous and lesser known sites.
