With its gorgeous white sand beaches, rugged moors and jagged peaks, the Outer Hebrides is a place of striking contrasts. More than 200 islands make up this astonishing 130 mile long archipelago in the North Atlantic, with all the main inhabited islands easy to reach by ferry or causeway. Be consistently amazed as you journey round these glorious isles. Lewis, Harris and St Kilda Lewis and Harris together make up Scotland’s largest island, but although they are one landmass, they are markedly different in landscape and character. The enigmatic islands of St Kilda lie 40 miles west of Harris and represent the journey of a lifetime. Lewis A great deal of Lewis consists of atmospheric moorland dotted with freshwater lochs. Such swathes of wilderness are increasingly rare in the modern world. The coastline of Lewis exists on a truly epic scale, being an unforgettable combination of giant sea cliffs and vast empty beaches. Lewis is rightly renowned for its amazing archaeological treasures, the most famous of which are the mysterious Calanais Standing Stones. These magnificent monoliths are believed to be 5,000 years old. Another point of major historical interest on Lewis is the impressive Dun Carloway broch, one of Scotland’s best preserved fortified towers, known to have been built more than 2,000 years ago. As well as being marked with such ancient artefacts, the landscape of Lewis is built for adventure. The surfing on the northwest coast is world-class thanks to the strength and consistency of the Atlantic swells. The sheer cliffs of Lewis are essentially an invite to abseil, while a great deal of pleasure can be derived from kayaking around the varied coastline. The local wildlife is exceptional, with the Butt of Lewis, at the tip of the island, a birdwatcher’s dream. Here you can find kittiwakes, fulmars and cormorants, while there is also the tantalising possibility of spotting whales off the north coast. The island’s main settlement is Stornoway, a bustling port and the largest town in the Outer Hebrides. Stornoway is home to An Lanntair, one of Scotland’s most dynamic arts venues, and every summer the popular Hebridean Celtic Festival takes place in and around the town.

05

Harris Harris could not be more different from Lewis. For a start, it’s more mountainous, the imposing hills of North Harris having been formed millions of years ago from some of the oldest rock on the planet. These dark jagged peaks give way to the more gentle landscape of South Harris where, on the west coast, you will find some of the most irresistible scenery in Scotland: brilliant white shell beaches and turquoise waters with the hills of North Harris offering a stirring backdrop. Luskentyre beach in particular impresses, a seemingly never-ending stretch of sand that you might even have to yourself. The beaches of Harris are backed by the machair, the Gaelic word for the low-lying fertile plain typical of the Outer Hebrides. The machair comes alive with wild flowers during the summer months. All of this is in stark contrast to the harsh eastern face of Harris, a barren, lunar-like landscape in which very little thrives. Set on this rocky east coast is the main ferry port of Tarbert, the town rising steeply from the pier and having a small selection of hotels and restaurants. Activity wise, there’s some excellent fishing to be had on Harris, with healthy stocks of salmon and trout, while if you’re a keen golfer you shouldn’t miss the opportunity of tackling the stunning 9-hole course at Scarista overlooking the beach of the same name. Of historical interest is St Clements Church in Rodel, a place of worship for the MacLeod chiefs in the 16th century. And, of course, Harris is the home of Harris Tweed, the famous and timeless luxury cloth that’s hand woven by islanders using local wool. St Kilda St Kilda is a Dual World Heritage Site and these remote and majestic islands attract visitors from all over the world. If your passion is birdwatching or diving, or if it is simply the isolation of these islands that has fired your imagination, a boat trip to St Kilda is a thrilling experience.

Each one of the main southern islands has its own unique character and travelling between them, whether by sea or over causeway, is a joy. The distances are modest, the rewards remarkable. You would do well to venture beyond Lewis and Harris during your time in the Outer Hebrides. 01 Tangasdale Beach, Isle of Barra. 02 Barra Airport, Traigh Mhor Beach, Isle of Barra. 03 Eilean na Cille on the east coast of the Isle of Benbecula. 04 Statue of Our Lady of the Isles, Isle of South Uist. 05 Ben Langass Stone Circle, near Lochmaddy, Isle of North Uist.

North Uist A mere 13 miles north to south, this island is characterised by long stretches of sand, peat bogs and countless small fresh water lochs. In fact, more than half of North Uist is submerged in water. This intriguing landscape attracts a great deal of birdlife, with the RSPB’s Balranald Nature Reserve drawing big numbers of coastal waders and divers. The many lochs of North Uist also provide good salmon and trout fishing. The island’s most notable historical sites include the 18 ft high chambered cairn Barpa Langass and the impressive stone circle of Pobull Fhinn. North Uist’s main settlement is Lochmaddy where the excellent Taigh Chearsabhagh Museum and Arts Centre can be found, as well as Uist Outdoor Centre which offers courses in sea kayaking and scuba diving.

Did you know? Q The Outer Hebrides is separated from mainland Scotland by an area of water known as the Minch. Q There are 97 named beaches in the Outer Hebrides. Q St Kilda is the only world heritage site in the UK to have dual status (of natural and cultural significance). Q More than two-thirds of the land in the Outer Hebrides is kept in crofting tenure. 04

Benbecula The tiny island of Benbecula sits between North and South Uist and is linked to both by causeway. Benbecula is considerably greener than North Uist and is also incredibly flat, though it follows the pattern of other Hebridean islands in having beautiful west coast beaches backed by lush machair.

In terms of sporting pursuits, the fishing on South Uist is fantastic, while golfers will be excited by the prospect of playing the ‘lost’ golf course at Askernish, laid out by the legendary course architect ‘Old’ Tom Morris in the 19th century and recently rediscovered and restored.

Benbecula’s attractions include Borve Castle, a ruined 14th century tower house. The main town on the island is Balivanich which acts as the administrative centre for the southern islands. The airport receives regular flights from the Scottish mainland.

The varied wildlife is a major attraction on South Uist with the vast Loch Druidibeg Nature Reserve supporting a large colony of greylag geese. Historical highlights include the 16th century Clanranald Stone (displayed in the Kildonan Museum), while you can also visit a deserted blackhouse village. Lochboisdale on the east coast of the island is the main village and port.

South Uist South Uist is one of the larger islands and is blessed with more than 20 continuous miles of west coast beach, backed by gigantic dunes. Large sea lochs cut into the more mountainous eastern side of this island of contrasts.

Linked to South Uist by causeway is the lovely island of Eriskay, where Bonnie Prince Charlie first set foot on Scottish soil, and it is from Eriskay that you can catch the ferry to Barra.

Barra Barra, the most southerly of the main islands, is beautiful in the extreme. A compact paradise with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, the beaches are spellbinding. In fact, planes land on the cockle shell beach at Traigh Mhor where the ‘runway’ vanishes below the waves at high tide. The main town in Barra is Castlebay where just offshore is Kisimul Castle, a medieval marvel perched on a rock in the bay. Kisimul Castle is the ancient seat of the Clan Macneil and you can explore it by taking the briefest of boat trips. On the far side of the bay you can make out the brilliant white sands of Vatersay, another Hebridean island luring you still further south. Vatersay can be reached these days by causeway. Such is the ease with which you can get around the Outer Hebrides there is very little excuse for not exploring them comprehensively.

Culture & history Cultar & eachdraidh These islands have been inhabited for over 6,000 years and you do get a real sense of history as you travel around the Outer Hebrides. The many interesting historical sites speak of this fascinating past, while the people themselves demonstrate that these islands are rich in culture. The Outer Hebrides has so many archaeological treasures with more being unearthed all the time. The Calanais Standing Stones on Lewis are an obvious highlight and a subject of much intrigue and speculation. Believed to have been erected around 2900 BC, the stones at Callanish rival Stonehenge in their power to impress. Scattered around these isles are numerous cairns and brochs while the Bosta Iron Age House on Bernera is a painstaking reconstruction of an Iron Age village that was uncovered by chance following a gale in the 1990s. It was St Columba who brought Christianity to these islands in the sixth century, founding several churches. By the ninth century, the Vikings had reached these shores and traces of Norse influence remain, especially in the naming of settlements on Lewis. During the time of the Jacobite Rising, Bonnie Prince Charlie landed on Eriskay from France and later hid out in the Hebrides to avoid capture by government troops following defeat at Culloden. The tale of the 19th century in the Outer Hebrides – as with the Highlands – is that of the Clearances, when many islanders were evicted from their homes by landowners, sparking a flood of emigrants to the New World. In many ways, the Outer Hebrides has a turbulent history. The rich culture of these islands though has thankfully remained intact. The Outer Hebrides is the heartland of Gaelic culture, with the majority of islanders speaking the Gaelic language and many towns and local landmarks retaining their Gaelic names.

06

The Hebridean people are immensely proud of their roots and enjoy celebrating the Gaelic culture, especially through music. The Outer Hebrides has a long tradition of accordion and bagpipe playing, while unaccompanied Gaelic singing is a highly regarded art form worth hearing while you visit. Really the best chance of that is at one of the islands’ festivals. The Hebridean Celtic Festival, a celebration of traditional and contemporary music, is a key date on the cultural calendar, while there are also many smaller community-organised arts festivals that feature traditional singing and piping. Ceòlas is another annual summer event, on South Uist, which showcases local music and dance. Roots and ancestry can exert a strong pull and a number of big Scottish clans have their origins in the Outer Hebrides, such as the MacNeils of Barra and the MacLeods of Lewis and Harris. Co Leis Thu? is the Genealogy Research Centre for the islands and is part of the Seallam! Visitor Centre on Harris. 01

Embrace the history and culture of these islands and the Outer Hebrides will reward your curiosity time and time again.

There’s so much beauty in the Outer Hebrides and it’s not just the ravishing scenery. Every day around these islands, local artists are creating new pieces of work to be viewed in their studios and in town shops and galleries. You might just end up carrying home more than lovely memories. The Hebridean landscape is a never ending source of inspiration for creative minds and there are many talented artists, photographers and crafts people living and working in the Outer Hebrides. Many of them make their working studios open to the public so that you can meet the artists, browse their work and perhaps leave with a new painting, photograph or piece of jewellery made in the Outer Hebrides. And what better time to visit than in the Year of Creative Scotland www.visitscotland.com/surprisecreative. Think of the Hebrides and the first thing that probably comes to mind is Harris Tweed, the famous luxury cloth handwoven by islanders using local wool. There are three Harris Tweed mills in the Outer Hebrides, using the skills of locals to produce authentic Harris Tweed cloth. All of the mills are on Lewis, rather than Harris as you might have imagined. There are Harris Tweed shops in different towns around the islands where you can select from jackets, suits, skirts, hats and handbags, all of them carrying the famous Orb trademark that indicates the item was genuinely handwoven in the Outer Hebrides.

Did you know? Q It was once common for islanders to pay their rent with lengths of Harris Tweed cloth. Q Harris Tweed has been used in designs by the likes of Ralph Lauren and Nike. Q The Harris Arts Festival was set up in the 1990s by a group of local enthusiasts. Q An Lanntair – the acclaimed arts venue – means ‘the lantern’.

There are some superb arts venues in the Outer Hebrides, the most well-known of which is in Stornoway. The award-winning An Lanntair enjoys a firm reputation that extends far beyond these islands. This strikingly modern arts venue champions the best in the visual and performing arts with the busy events programme typically including traditional and contemporary music. An Lanntair features local, national and international artists, while you can also dine in the excellent restaurant. Taigh Chearsabhagh in Lochmaddy on North Uist is an award-winning community museum and arts centre that features contemporary art and takes care to reflect the islands’ heritage and culture. The venue is beautifully set by the shoreline and is worth an hour or two of your time if you happen to be in the area. The Outer Hebrides boasts some excellent arts festivals which showcase the creativity of these islands. These festivals tend to take place during the summer months and they include the Harris Arts Festival which celebrates the special culture of Harris with a series of fun events and workshops.

There is a real emphasis on nature conservation in the Outer Hebrides and these wildlife rich islands boast three National Nature Reserves (NNRs), in addition to the superb RSPB Nature Reserve on North Uist. There are many more designated areas of environmental value across these islands. North Rona and Sula Sgeir (two remote islands off the north coast of Lewis) form a single NNR of international importance. These two islands attract tens of thousands of breeding seabirds, including guillemots, gannets and storm petrels. The Monach Isles west of North Uist form another NNR that draws hundreds of barnacle geese as well as large numbers of fulmars. The third NNR is St Kilda where the sheer cliffs and sea stacks attract more than a million seabirds. St Kilda happens to have the largest colony of gannets in the world as well as the UK’s biggest puffin colony.

Back on the main islands, the RSPB Nature Reserve on North Uist has lapwings, oystercatchers and corncrakes among the machair. In fact, the Outer Hebrides is the last stronghold of the corncrake and accounts for around two-thirds of the UK’s population of this famously elusive bird. The epic sea cliffs at the Butt of Lewis attract their share of magnificent seabirds including fulmars, kittiwakes and shags, while the South Lochs region of the island is a favoured spot for wading birds. Look out for redshanks and curlews here too. In among the Uig hills in southwest Lewis you will have a good chance of spotting golden eagles and white-tailed eagles. Finally, on South Uist, Loch Druidibeg has long been an important breeding site for greylag geese, which remain throughout the year.

Away from dry land, the waters around the Outer Hebrides play host to some incredible marine life. Basking sharks are a fairly common sight around the coastline in summer and if you’re lucky you will also see killer whales and bottlenose dolphins. The Outer Hebrides also has more than 40% of the world’s grey seal population and the densest population of otters in north west Europe. Besides all the creatures, these islands contain an amazing range of flora, some of which is very rare indeed. There are actually more than a thousand types of wild flower in the Outer Hebrides and at the height of summer the machair is transformed into a colourful carpet of orchids, yellow irises and poppies. So come to the Outer Hebrides and see nature in all its vivid glory.

Did you know? Q Around 370 different species of bird have been recorded in the Outer Hebrides. Q These islands are one of the best places in the UK for seeing birds of prey, such is their volume. Q There have been sightings of humpback whales off the Hebridean coast. Q Eight species of orchid flourish in the Outer Hebrides.

Outdoor activities Cur-seachadan a-muigh Should you possess a sense of adventure, there are all kinds of thrilling sporting pursuits you can throw yourself into while holidaying in the Outer Hebrides. From surfing to windsurfing, diving to abseiling, it is non-stop action, with more sedate sports like fishing and golf on the cards too. Unsurprisingly for a chain of islands, watersports feature heavily in the Outer Hebrides and if you’re into surfing, the north west coast of Lewis is the place to head for incredible reef and beach breaks. Here you can enjoy some of the most consistent surf in Europe with year-round swells and you may get a sense of the tremendous enthusiasm that exists among the local surfing community. As well as surfing, there are excellent windsurfing opportunities throughout the Outer Hebrides. Uig Sands on Lewis is a recognised windsurfing spot, as are some of the more sheltered waters around Vatersay. Kitesurfing too has grown in popularity in the Outer Hebrides in recent years. With all those fantastic sea lochs to explore, kayaking is a common pursuit around these parts, while sailing is another obvious activity, given that there are in excess of 200 islands to explore and plenty of beautiful spots for mooring. Popular sailing destinations include the Flannan Isles and Mingulay. There are some superb diving opportunities around the Outer Hebrides where, in clear waters, you can explore kelp forests, reefs, pinnacles and numerous wrecks, while observing the fantastic marine life. For the ultimate diving experience, take a boat trip to St Kilda, which has been rated one of the top five diving locations in the world.

From the ocean depths to the highest peaks, the mountains of North Harris, where there is so much unclimbed rock to be scaled, present a stiff challenge to serious climbers. Sticking with rocks, the sea cliffs of Lewis are a very popular spot for abseiling. While the Outer Hebrides might not be the first place that comes to mind when you think of golf, some of Scotland’s most scenic (and cheapest) courses happen to be here, including the stunning 9-hole course on Harris and an epic 18-hole layout among the dunes at Askernish on South Uist which was designed by ‘Old’ Tom Morris. All around the islands there are excellent sea angling and freshwater fishing opportunities thanks to good stocks of wild salmon and trout. If you just want to stretch your legs and take in the fresh air, enjoy an exhilarating coastal walk or a trek across the moorland in the company of a local guide. Or if you prefer two wheels, turn the wind to your advantage and cycle the islands south to north making use of all those useful causeways, or bike for a morning or afternoon along quiet roads.

01

And if you’re the type that never shirks from a challenge, enter one of the four Hebridean half-marathons that take place on Lewis, Harris, Benbecula and Barra in the summer.

The Outer Hebrides is renowned for its high quality produce with lots of talented local producers delivering premium Hebridean fare, including smoked salmon, fresh shellfish, succulent beef and lamb. So support the local economy and treat yourself in the process. The Hebridean larder consists of fresh quality ingredients, with restaurant menus kept local and seasonal. Freshwater salmon and trout feature regularly, as does exquisite local shellfish like lobster, scallops and crabs. While on these islands, you can feast on the likes of mussels and oysters too. Highly recommended is a visit to a Hebridean smokehouse where you can learn how peat smoked salmon is prepared, before sampling it. The Hebridean Smokehouse on North Uist produces this delicacy as well as peat smoked scallops and sea trout, using traditional methods. The Salar Smokehouse on South Uist is wellknown for the quality of its flaky smoked salmon. While on Lewis you should try Stornoway kippers which have been split, salted and smoked in the town for over 150 years. Another famous local product is Stornoway black pudding, available in local butchers and served everywhere from cafés to leading restaurants.

03

There is a long tradition of cattle and sheep rearing in the Outer Hebrides, resulting in the high quality of the local beef and lamb. Hebridean mutton gets its distinct flavour from the hill sheep grazing on the heather. Besides all that fish and red meat, you can sample artisan cheeses and homemade pâtés in the Hebrides – spread on crisp handmade oatcakes. And if you have a sweet tooth you should seek out some of the luxury Scottish tablet made by Barra-based Hebridean Toffee. Round off your day with a bottle of awardwinning craft beer from the Hebridean Brewery in Stornoway or a dram of single malt whisky from the Abhainn Dearg Distillery in Uig on the Isle of Lewis. Eating and drinking the quality local produce available in the Outer Hebrides will only enhance your enjoyment of the islands.

For more information, visit www.easternairways.com or call 08703 669 100.

By bus Regular bus services to mainland ferry ports connect where possible with ferry arrival and departure times.

Scotland’s Star Quality! - A simple, impartial, consistent approach to quality VisitScotland, under the Scottish Tourist Board brand, runs the star grading schemes which assess the quality standards of all types of accommodation and visitor attractions from castles and historic houses to garden centres and arts venues. We quality assure over 70 percent of the accommodation in Scotland and 90 percent of the visitor attractions – so wherever you want to stay or visit, we’ve got it covered. Each establishment is reviewed once a year. We do the hard work so you can relax and enjoy your holiday. How does the system work?

Graded visitor attractions

A consistent standard wherever you stay

Visitor attractions from tourist shops and museums to leisure centres and tours are graded with 1 - 5 stars depending on their level of customer care. The focus is on the standard of hospitality and service as well as presentation, quality of shop or cafĂŠ (if there is one) and toilet facilities.

The promise of the stars:

Â?

it is clean, tidy and an acceptable, standard

Â?Â? Â?Â?Â?

it is a good, all round standard

Â?Â?Â?Â?

it is excellent – furnished using high quality materials, surperb food where provided and friendly, professional service

it is a very good standard, with attention to detail in every area

Our advisors visit and assess establishments on up to 50 areas from quality, comfort and cleanliness to welcome, ambience and service. The same star scheme runs in England and Wales, so you can follow the stars wherever you go.

Â?Â?Â?Â?Â? an exceptional standard where

It should be noted that those establishments that fail to meet our minimum standards will not be awarded a star rating.

Establishments awarded gold stars have consistently achieved the highest levels of excellence within their star grading.

presentation, ambience, food where provided and service are hard to fault

We grade all types of accommodation from hostels, through to B&Bs and self catering properties to hotels grand and small. We even grade campus accommodation and parks offering holiday homes and camping. So whether you prefer to spend the night under canvas or the canopy of a four-poster bed, we’ll make sure you know the standard to expect.

Now is the time to choose your accommodation

Booking Accepting accommodation by telephone or in writing means you have entered into a legally binding contract with the proprietor of the establishment. If you cancel or fail to take up that accommodation, for whatever reason, the proprietor generally has the right to ask for compensation. You should always check the cancellation terms in advance and, if you must cancel a booking, advise the management immediately.

Smoking The majority of Scotland’s indoor public places, including pubs, restaurants and cafés are smokefree by law, creating a healthier and fresher environment for residents and visitors to our beautiful country. Hotels, Guest Houses and B&Bs are also smoke-free but can designate bedrooms where guests can smoke, if they wish to do so. To check the availability of such bedrooms, please check with the establishment directly when booking. For further information, visit www.clearingtheairscotland.com

This guide has been split into five accommodation sections for the Isles of Lewis, Harris, North Uist, Benbecula & South Uist and Barra. • • • • •

Hotels and Inns Guest Houses and B&Bs Self Catering Camping and Caravan Parks Hostels/Activity Accommodation

Establishments are listed within these sections in alphabetical order by location and then by business name. Each entry has a map reference relating to the maps which appear on pages 64 – 65 of this guide. The map is helpful if you don’t know where a particular town is in relation to the area that interests you. Where establishments are listed as ‘By’ a town or village it is wise to check the exact location with the operator before making your journey.

Insurance & cancellations Should you have to cancel for any reason, it is reassuring to know that you can be insured against any compensation claim. Please ensure you take out cancellation insurance prior to your trip. Pricing The prices of accommodation, services, and facilities stated in this guide are based on information received from the relevant advertisers. Please note that the prices, include VAT where applicable and are for your guidance only (VAT as at October 2011). Please check prices when you book accommodation and confirm exactly what the quoted price includes.

Further information To book your accommodation either go to www.visitscotland.com (a booking fee may apply) or contact the accommodation provider direct.

For added assurance of quality and standards, all accommodation establishments display a Quality Assurance Award. The scheme is explained on pages 20 and 21.

Gaelic In this area most of the population speak the Gaelic language (as well as English), so if you wish to stay with Gaelic speakers please look out for the symbol within entries and ask when you book your accommodation to confirm that this is available. The Gaelic language is rich in tradition, history, music, and culture, and will add an interesting dimension to your holiday. Look out for the Short Breaks symbol The Outer Hebrides offers a fabulous range of quality assured accommodation as listed on pages 24 – 52. Please look out for the short breaks symbol within entries. Contact them direct for current special offers or to make a booking.
