Hiking Scotland’s Western Isles (land tour)
Dates: Wednesday, August 1, 2018 to Saturday, August 11, 2018 (11 days)
Travel from the Isle of Mull in the south, along the western edge of highland Scotland to the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides (Western Isles), sometimes along the mainland coast, but more often across incomparably beautiful – and fascinating – islands. Explore all that the western Highlands and Islands of Scotland have to offer: prehistoric stone circles, burial cairns, and settlements; quaint villages and imposing castles; Gaelic culture and remarkable wildlife—all amidst dramatic land- and seascapes. Highlights include Fingal’s Cave, Iona Abbey, the Talisker Distillery, the 5,000-year-old Standing Stones of Callanish, and Dun Carloway. This unique tour is more active than our usual land tours and features almost-daily hikes (of 2.5 to 6 miles) that are easy to moderate in difficulty. Limited to 15 participants.
