What’s on Outer Hebrides

Also known as the Western Isles, the Outer Hebrides is a blend of rugged mountain ranges and lush green valleys strung out some 130 miles over more than 200 islands. With its spectacular natural environment, the Outer Hebrides is ideal for walking, cycling and watching wildlife, and its superb Atlantic beaches draw surfers from around the globe. Fishing for salmon and trout, as well as sea angling, is highly popular here and, long-regarded as the heartland of Gaelic culture, the Outer Hebrides is also home to a vast wealth of artistic and musical talent. Regular programmes of events and exhibitions are held throughout the islands, celebrating different aspects of life in the Outer Hebrides, and music can be enjoyed in both formal and informal settings at any time of the year.
