To the Isle of Harris
On leaving the island capital of Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis, today’s tour takes you directly south along wonderfully scenic and mountainous roads to the southern Isle of Harris and its capital port town of Tarbert.
We will spend some time in this busy little town before continuing south west to Luskentyre where you can enjoy some time on the beautiful Horgabost beach.
Take in the views of the uninhabited island of Taransay, made famous in the millennium year when it became home to a group of people sent there for the first reality television program where they lived as a mixed community away from the trappings of modern life. Your guide will also tell you about the fascinating and true rocket story of Taransay which has recently been made into a film.
There will be plenty of opportunities to take photographs here and at other view points along the way before journeying back to the northern Isle and Stornoway.
- The tour will be the same “there and back”, there is no viable circular route for coaches, unfortunately.
