2 Day Outer Hebrides Tour
Discover a flavour of the 'Island on the Edge' with a two day Outer Hebrides tour from Inverness exploring the stunning landscapes, ancient history and the breath-taking scenery of the Isle of Lewis.
Day 1 - An early start from Inverness to the coastal village of Ullapool where we board the ferry for a 2½ hour journey across the Minch to the Isle of Lewis and its main town of Stornoway (my native town). From there we spend the afternoon exploring the magnificent Neolithic Callanish Standing Stones, the 2000 year old Dun Carloway Broch and a traditional Hebridean blackhouse. We finish the day at the beautiful Atlantic coastal beach of Dalbeg before our return to Stornoway for our overnight stay.
Day 2 - We spend the morning on the Isle of Lewis, heading west then north on a journey towards the Butt of Lewis - the most northerly point in the Hebrides - for the dramatic views of the cliffs and the Atlantic sea. We return to Stornoway where we explore the town and visit the Lewis Chessmen at the Museum nan Eilean in Lews Castle. The afternoon ferry takes us back to Ullapool and then it is a final drive through wonderful Highland scenery to Inverness.
Due to the ferry timings, we would strongly recommend the 3 Day Outer Hebrides Tour or the 3 Day Outer Hebrides and Isle of Skye Tour for a visit to the Outer Hebrides. However, for those with limited time this tour gives a great flavour of the Isle of Lewis in Outer Hebrides - with plenty of time at the stunning Callanish Standing Stones!
