  6. A gentle circular walk around the community of Iochdar on the west coast of South Uist offering superb coastal views from the Atlantic-facing beach.

  8. Tangasdal -Looking South to Dun Ban
    This is an established trail with way-marker posts in Barra. It has a combination of cultural and natural heritage which gives a great insight to the island’s past and present. It has also some truly spectacular scenery.
  9. Walking in the Outer Hebrides
    For those looking for an unforgettable adventure, there is the option of walking or cycling the length of the Outer Hebrides along the Hebridean Way – our long-distance walking route which stretches for 156 miles from Vatersay in the south to Stornoway in the north. It’s a truly iconic island experience.
  10. Surfer with surf board
    If your idea of unwinding is a little faster paced, take a look at our suggestions on Adventure and Relaxation in the Outer Hebrides.
