6-Day Outer Hebrides and Isle of Skye Tour from Ed

Your 6-day tour follows a route from Edinburgh through the Highlands and northwest Scotland to the Outer Hebrides, a far-flung archipelago off Scotland’s western coast. Unlike the northern Scottish islands, the climate is relatively mild, making it a lovely destination for lovers of the great outdoors and Scottish countryside alike.See incredible scenery as well as historical sites and wildlife during your time in the Hebrides, as well as the nearby Isle of Skye and several exciting Scottish towns on your way to and from Edinburgh. Spend your first night in the fishing village of Ullapool on Scotland’s northwest coast, followed by three nights in Stornaway on the Outer Hebridean Isle of Lewis, and your two final nights in Plockton on the Isle of Skye. Nights are spent in centrally located 3-star guesthouses or hotels, and you’ll have ample free time to explore the towns independently in between excursions. All entrance fees, lunches and dinners are at your own expense throughout the tour.
