Isle of Benbecula
Benbecula is a place where legend and lore is woven into an amazing island landscape, with stunning stories and spectacular scenery on offer across the island.
Climb Rueval Hill on the East Side of the island for views that stretch for miles over land and sea and also offer a glimpse of this island’s historic past, looking out as they do over the Bonnie Prince Charlie trail – which the Young Pretender followed as he made good his escape from the Red Coat Army following the bloody Battle of Culloden.
Tour the ruins Borve Castle on the island’s West Side and stand on the same spot that sheltered the chiefs of the Clanranald for centuries or visit St Toranan’s ruined Temple to St Columba for an introduction to of how these islands acquired their enduring faith.
Choose to ride across the island’s stretching white sands, or simply sit and enjoy the stunning shifting seascapes as you gaze out across the Atlantic ocean.
From historic events to superb natural heritage, Benbecula has it all in abundance.
