Planning a visit to the majestic islands off the coast of Scotland
It is often the case that we fail to explore the locations and attractions that are on our own doorstep but instead venture to far flung places around the world. The Scottish islands are so varied in their size and what they have to offer ranging from the tiny outcrop of Inch Kenneth to the largest of the Islands namely Lewis and Harris.
If you are interested in walking then a holiday on one of the Scottish Islands is definitely for you as there are a plethora of amazing routes to follow either along one of the beautiful beaches or across the craggy peaks of Skye. There is always the opportunity to do a spot of bird watching whilst on your travels and you may be lucky enough to see some of the rare breeds of birds in their unspoilt natural habitat.
When you tire of sightseeing you could visit one of the many working whiskey distilleries each with their own distinctive flavour gained from the excellent pure water sources which run through the peat filled ground.
Of course, a visit to the Scottish Isles would not be complete without trying the locally produced haggis accompanied by the traditional neeps and tatties.
