Eriskay Beach

Reviewed By Z6538VFrobertb - Kincardine, United Kingdom

If you are on the outer Hebrides this is a must visit. The drive over to Eriskay from Uist is amazing in itself. The beach is close to the road so very easy access. As soon as you see the beach you will see a massive white sand beach with stunning clear waters. We took wetsuits and went for a swim then had lunch after the water is refreshing and if it’s sunny it’s like the carribean.

Uig Sands

Reviewed By Scotlandmac - Glasgow, United Kingdom

The whole area around the extensive Uig Sands is a must visit on any trip to Lewis.An hour or so from Stornoway but definitely Lewis's most beautiful area (along with Mangersta and Reef.) In fact this must be one of the most impressive areas in the whole of the Outer Isles. We were lucky in that the sun shone and we walked from the car park, for 20 mins to a particularly deserted part of the Uig sands (you could walk for miles all round the little bays and headlands) and had a picnic. Paradise. Beautiful pink/orange rock of the type I've seen on Iona were a gorgeous backdrop to the turquoise seas and white sands. There is a free (donation) area behind the main part of the beach, set back from the dunes, where wild camping is allowed supported by public toilets/showers. A replica large Lewis Chessman is passed while heading to the parking. Luskentyre is still to me the most beautiful area of all (and in any weather given the colours and rock/moorland there) but Uig is stunning also.

Love this gallery. Full of beautiful imaginative handmade glass and embroidery items made by Doug and Kate on Harris. I have quite a few items now, they are so colourful and really well made. The gallery is in a beautiful setting and the views are breathtaking x They also have lovely face book and instagram pages where Kate posts pics and videos of their beautiful island. A lovely couple with a fabulous little business, acheived through hard work and dedication. Fabulous customer service and lovely hot chocolate ❤❤❤❤❤

Callanish Standing Stones

This ancient monument is one of the most significant archaeological spots in Scotland's Outer Hebrides.

Reviewed By naturequeen - Huddersfield, United Kingdom

The time to visit this if it were possible would be alone in the evening with you and the stones for company. Set in beautiful scenery and quite extraordinary it is well worth a visit when you are in this part of Scotland. Don't go to Scotland and not visit here. Great gift shop but the cafe was packed and very long queues because of its popularity so would suggest an "out of season" or out of school holidays if you don't want to be squeezed out by the other tourists visiting here.

Golden Road

Reviewed By cookington - Plymouth, United Kingdom

We took this route by accident (!) but it was one of the highlights of our stay on Harris - absolutely breathtaking views, almost otherworldly in places. Be prepared to take it slow - there are lots of blind corners and more than a few stubborn sheep too!
