Washed by the surging waves of the Atlantic Ocean, the island chain of the Outer Hebrides lies at the very edge of Europe. This richly illustrated book is a fabulous invitation to discover the distinct character of each of the islands, covering Lewis and Harris, Berneray, Grimsay, North Uist, Benbecula, South Uist, Eriskay, Barra and Vatersay, and the vibrant Gaelic culture of the islanders. From white shell sands, peaty moors and gnarly mountains to heather hills, sea-green lochs and mysterious ancient monuments, these are places of unrivalled beauty which are also home to a huge variety of wildlife on land, at sea and in the air – otters, red deer, orca, dolphins, sea eagles, grey seals and corncrake, to name but a few.

Packed with outstanding experiences, fascinating insights, hidden gems and helpful information, Hebridean Journey creates the uplifting opportunity of meaningful travels and life affirming experiences in the unique magic of Scotland’s Atlantic islands.
