Based in luxury glamping accommodation overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, spend days exploring Britain’s wildest corner. From windy lighthouse walks on the Isle of Lewis to the beautiful beaches of Harris, explore the remote landscapes on this exhilarating self drive adventure. Sip gin at the Isle of Harris Distillery, experience the history and heritage of crofting life at Gearrannan Blockhouse Village, and search for eagles soaring overhead. At the end of adventurous days, return to your fully heated and insulated Hebridean hut where you can relax, and enjoy panoramic views of the rugged Lewis coastline.
Day 1 | Arrive in Stornoway
Arrive at Stornoway Airport, and collect your hire car. The island capital of Stornoway has a lovely selection of cafés, perfect for a lunch stop. A short walk from the centre you can find a beautiful woodland and the landscaped grounds of Lewis Castle. Take a stroll around the estate before heading to check in to your Hebridean Hut for a four night stay.
Day 2 | Butt of Lewis & Eilean Glas
One of the island's best (and windiest!) walks is to the Butt of Lewis lighthouse. The 3.5 mile circuit is an absolute must for keen walkers. Another fantastic lighthouse stroll is a 2 mile hike along a gravel track on the island of Scalpay to the picture perfect Eilean Glas lighthouse.
Day 3 | Historic sights
Start the day at Gearrannan Blackhouse Village, a coastal crofting village retracing the lives of the highlanders that once inhabited it. A site of great archaeological interest, visit the Callanish Standing Stones next to discover more about the history of the Isle of Lewis.
Day 4 | Harris Beaches
Relax at the Luskentyre Beach on the Isle of Harris, a Caribbean dream boasting crystal blue seas and a white sand bay. On the way back, stop off at the Isle of Harris Distillery for a guided tour.
Day 5 | Departure Day
Depending on the time of your flight back to mainland, enjoy a bite to eat at the Blue Lobster in Stornoway before returning the car to the airport for your return flight.
