Harris has fantastic opportunities for Brown, Sea Trout and Salmon Fishing, let alone the sea fishing. Permits available locally, the coastal waters around the Hebrides are warmer than most of Scotland because of our proximity to the Gulf Stream, which brings warmer waters up from the Southern Atlantic.

An abundant sea life thrives in our waters with many to be seen, whether diving or simply waking on the beach. Dolphins porpoises, whales and Orca can all be seen at the right time of year, as well as the ever present seal and seabird populations.

The cruise stops off in Hirta where visitors are equipped with a map detailing historical points of interest and suggested routes for touring the island on foot. It also takes in St Kilda’s spectacular coastline with its towering sea stacks and cliffs inhabited by thousands of seabirds and the Shiant Isles also.

BIRDWATCHING - Birds include dunlin, redshank, plover, lapwing and the islands are the last stronghold of the corncrake. Nearly every beach seems to have a population of sandpipers. The islands are formed on the oldest exposed rock in the world, Lewisian Gneiss. This is grey coloured with bands of white and dark minerals contorted by the pressure of the earth. These were formed over 3000 million years ago, similar rocks are found today in Canada to which this part of Scotland was once joined.

CYCLING - Harris and Lewis, though named separately are a single island. Harris is the southern part, Lewis is in the north. Lewis is mostly open moorland, Harris is mountainous but very scenic, the east coast is rocky. The west coast is flatter, with vast sandy beaches, should try to find time to cycle right round South Harris.
