This panoramic tour takes you to picturesque Harris, famous for its Harris Tweed, a hand-woven cloth made from pure new Scottish wool, dyed using indigenous plants.
Admire the diverse scenery as you pass the fjord-like sea lochs of Loch Erisort and Loch Seaforth, before travelling through a mountain pass with excellent views of the rugged countryside and the majestic Clisham, which at 2,625 feet is the highest mountain in the Outer Isles. Powerful forces of ice and sea in the distant past have carved and polished an impressive landscape of stark sea-cliffs, sweeping beaches and heather uplands. The rocks discovered here are said to be the oldest in the world.
Watch as the old, pre-First World War whaling station of Banamhuinneader and the vivid lunar landscape of rocks dotted with tiny lochans pass by, before stopping for some free time in the quaint fishing village of Tarbert, which overlooks Loch Tarbert.
Leaving Tarbert, you’ll travel the vast expanse of Luskentyre Bay, heading for Horgabost Beach. Enjoy free time here to admire the bleached white sand that enticingly fills the entire bay, washed by turquoise sea and backed by steep dunes. All this is set against the backdrop of the mountains to the north and the beautiful, uninhabited island of Taransay, where the BBC Television series Castaway 2000 was recorded.
