Stunning hill walking holiday which ventures onto some of the least visited and distinctive hills in the Outer Hebrides


The natural hues of the Hebrides - a blend of white shell-sand beaches, turquoise seas and the colourful wild flowers growing on fertile machair (coastal pasture) are exceptional, by any standards. This trip provides a unique chance to climb the most distinctive of the Outer Hebridean peaks.

The Uig Hills in west Lewis have possibly the most 'on the edge of the world' feel of any in Scotland. Mealisval or Griomaval will give us a memorable day with their wild and rocky landscape, before we relax on the dramatic cliff-fringed sands of Traigh Mangersta.

On North Harris we take on Clisham, at 799m the highest peak in the Outer Hebrides. Although steep we follow a path most of the way. From the summit the views extend as far as St Kilda in the west and the Uists in the south.

From Harris we take the short ferry-crossing to North Uist, where on the island's east coast the imposing and distinctive shape of Eaval dominates. From Eaval's summit we look down onto a maze of lochans that dominate the landscape.

On South Uist we follow the path winding around the pinnacles of jagged Beinn Mhor, at 620m the island's highest peak offering stunning views extending across to Skye.
