Tour: Outer Hebrides, Isle of Skye Adventure 6 Day Tour
What a wonderful tour this was! I have been to the outer Hebrides before but there are always new things to experience and new places to visit. Our guide Keith Fraser was outstanding. I had been on tour with him before so I knew I was in good hands. His friendliness was exceptional. He did his utmost to give us a memorable tour. Weather varied a bit but that is Scotland in a nutshell. Most of the time the weather was quite good, but when we visited the Butt of Lewis there was a proper downpour. On the second day on Lewis Keith took us to see a few places I have not been to before but my favourite stop this day was undoubtedly Bosta Beach on Great Bernera. I suggested this stop and I was very happy when it turned out to be a good place to visit. In the evening he took those of us who wanted it back to Callanish to experience the celebration of the summer solstice. Very enjoyable! The following day we headed south to Harris and the beautiful Luskentyre beach. This is one of my favourite places in Scotland and I was thrilled to be back again. This year I even went for a paddle because the weather was so nice. Water was chilly but I loved the experience. After touring Harris we headed for Skye by ferry. I like Skye but I must admit I prefer Lewis and Harris. The outer Hebrides have just a very special charm. When we headed back to Edinburgh the weather got better the further south we got, and for the first time I got to see Glencoe in sunshine. Keith just seemed to tick off boxes left, right and center – new places to see, Luskentyre in sunshine, Glencoe in sunshine, the Kelpies etc. He was simply brilliant. So once again thank you for an absolutely awesome tour!
