Isle of Harris and Lewis,
(two centre trip)
with Colin Westgate and Tom Peck
Saturday 6 October to Monday 15 October 2018 (5 days Harris, 4 days Durness). (7 places)
The hauntingly beautiful Outer Hebridean islands of Harris and Lewis are, in reality, only one island divided into two parts, each very different in character. Harris, in the south, is rugged and rocky, whereas Lewis is bleaker and covered largely by moorland. Both have fabulous colourful beaches, including Luskentyre (Harris) and Tolsta (Lewis). Another well known feature on Lewis is the mysterious area of standing stones at Callanais (Callanish). The islands are reached by ferry from Uig (Skye) or Ullapool on the mainland, and it is from the former that we will make our outward crossing. We will return from Stornoway to Ullapool before proceeding to the far north at Durness, one of the most remote parts the U.K. Here the surging surf of the north Atlantic crashes onto golden beaches, with spectacular translucent green rollers. Travel will be by air to Inverness, and thence by minibus and ferry.
Price £1475 (deposit £200) Single supplement £225. (7 places) Price includes half board accommodation (dinner, B&B), minibus travel and ferries. It does not include cost of flights or travel (other than ferry) to Harris. The price is based on shared en-suite twin rooms with a supplement payable for single occupancy.
