Western Scotland’s Inner and Outer Hebrides are ideal for a hiking adventure: monuments that span millennia dot the sea-sculpted archipelago, among spectacular cliffs and fjords. Explore with archaeologist Mary MacLeod Rivett, and no more than fifteen travelers, a fascinating array of standing stones and burial cairns, Iron Age forts, medieval castles, and remote villages. Local ferries take you between islands, including Arran, Staffa, Iona, Mull, Skye, Harris, and Lewis, where highlights include the prehistoric ruins on Machrie Moor and the standing stones of Callanish; Iron Age Dun Carloway; Dunadd hill fort; Skipness and Duart Castles; Iona’s monastery of St. Columba; and unforgettable natural wonders such as Fingal’s Cave.
