Outer Hebrides

Explore, plan and book with Wild Scotland


The Outer Hebrides, also called the Western Isles, are the most westerly edges of the British Isles. 

These unique islands offer wild landscapes and some of the most beautiful sandy beaches in Europe as well as a treasure trove of species including puffins, golden eagles, basking sharks, minke whales and otters.

The deserted white stretches of sand, turquoise waters and the untamed beauty of grassy hills and wildflower meadows beg to be explored, whether you're wild swimming, sea kayaking, biking, hiking or on a wildlife-watching boat tour. 

The Hebrides are a haven for fascinating flora and fauna. You can find (or hear) the elusive corncrake in the machair wildflower meadows, which are also home to internationally important populations of nesting waders. The offshore Monach Islands are important pupping sites for Atlantic grey seals, and farthest west is St Kilda, a dual World Heritage site awarded thus for its cultural and natural value, hosting one of the largest colonies of seabirds in Europe. 

It's unsurprising that these ancient landscapes are also bursting with various historical sites of interest, like the Callanish Stones as well as traditional blackhouses, castles and brochs.
