What You Can Expect

3-Day Hebrides Tour from Inverness: Isles of Lewis and Harris

Rogie Falls

Day 1: Inverness –Isle of Lewis
Leave Inverness behind and head northwest by luxury minibus to the seaside town of Ullapool. Stop to stretch your legs on the way with a short woodland walk to the impressive Rogie Falls, and then enjoy a visit to the breathtaking Corrieshalloch Gorge. Test your head for heights as you stand on the gorge’s spectacular viewing platform, enjoying views of the crashing waterfalls and countryside towards Loch Broom.

On reaching Ullapool, stop for lunch (own expense), then hop on the ferry for a 3-hour ride across the seas to Stornaway -- the capital of the Isle of Lewis. After being dropped off at your hotel, the evening is yours to spend at leisure.

Overnight: 3-star bed and breakfast or 3-star hotel in central Stornaway

Day 2: Isle of Lewis (B)
Enjoy breakfast and then meet your guide to explore the pretty Stornaway by day. While easily the largest settlement in the Western Hebrides, the town is tiny by mainland standards. Learn about its ancient history and traditional tweed-making shops while exploring its quaint streets.

Next, continue your tour to the island’s most northern point by minibus, to visit the windiest place in the British Isles (as recorded by the Guinness Book of Records) – the Butt of Lewis Lighthouse. After exploring the windswept plains around the lighthouse at leisure, head on to see other fascinating sites like the ancient Callanish Standing Stones and Carloway Broch – a meticulously well-preserved Iron Age structure. Spend the rest of your day sightseeing independently around the island, perhaps strolling along its stunning beaches.

Overnight: 3-star bed and breakfast or 3-star hotel in central Stornaway

Day 3: Isle of Harris – Inverness (B)
Rise early for breakfast on your final day and then head out with your guide to explore the beautiful Isle of Harris. Confusingly, Harris isn’t an island in its own right; it’s a stretch of land at the south of the Isle of Lewis, with its own distinct character. Visit the main port, Tarbert, and then travel west by minibus to see the Sound of Taransay – a remote and windswept island that was made famous for hosting the British TV programme, Castaway. Stroll along beautiful Lusekentyre Beach before saying your goodbyes to the Hebrides and returning to Inverness.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

This was an experience that will stay in my memory for as long as I live. Hauntingly beautiful vista's and magnificent mountains and lochs. Beaches that would grace the finest postcards and crystal blue seas.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2014

The tour was excellent. Jane, our guide, was very knowledgeable about the sites we visited and considerate of her passengers' abilities to maneuver them. She is also an excellent driver.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

My husband and took this tour and can recommend it to everyone. There were thirteen of us, all got along together and Dave the driver and guide was super. His knowledge made the trip interesting and exciting. We booked three star hotels and were most pleased with the accommodation. There was,in fact,nothing we could fault with the tour.
