See seals, otters, dolphins and even a whale or two. Then return to heartwarming hospitality at the many beautiful hotels in the Hebrides.

Meanwhile, the Isle of Islay is home to less than 4,000 people and in joyous proportions, eight working whisky distilleries as well. Known for its spectacular landscapes, views that stretch over the Mull of Oa to the Atlantic beyond, its wildlife and its rugged romance. It’s also got a reputation for the superb warmth of its inhabitants.

Stay at a country house complete with home baked treats and plenty of tea or a B&B filled with exquisite flower arrangements. Sample chocolates from a Highland chocolatier and porridge laced (naturally) with local whisky as well as island ales and botanical gins. Whether you head to the bed and breakfasts of the Isle of Skye or the Isle of Harris, or the luxury hotels of the Western Isles, you can be assured of a unique experience that you won’t find anywhere else.
