Earn your certificate for completing Scotland’s famous Hebridean Way when you cycle the length of the Outer Hebrides. You experience gorgeous mountains and moorland, white sandy beaches, and wild Atlantic weather. The Outer Hebrides are unlike anywhere else in the U.K.
Cycle from the southernmost accessible tip of the Outer Hebrides islands on Bhatarsaigh (Vatersay) … to the northernmost tip on the Butt of Lewis. You cross over 10 islands, 6 causeways, and 4 ferries heading north through these remote and spectacular islands. And you get an insider look at Scottish history that highlights the Gaelic and Norse cultures. The word “Hebrides” comes from the Norse Viking words for “islands at the edge of the sea.”
Discover a culture very different from the Scottish mainland. Every night on the islands, you are a guest at a small and historic town. This includes the Muthu Alexandra Hotel, which lies in a crescent occupying the hills surrounding Oban Bay, known as the “Seafood Capital of Scotland.” The Craigard Hotel is on the Isle of Barra, the southern gateway to the Isles, where you see outstanding views and the historic Kisimul Castle. Lastly, stay at the Crown Inn – where you can discover the sunset at the Callanish Stones, which have been standing for 5,000 years and pre-date Stonehenge. Let’s cycle through history together!
