If you are travelling to the Islands as an independent traveller and enjoy walking and sightseeing, you should consider one of our customised full or half day tours during your visit.
Lewis and Harris is the third largest island in the British Isles and has much to offer the visitor including a stunning variety of archaeological and historic sites, rugged landscapes and abundant wildlife. If you are planning to spend a fairly short time on the island our experience and expertise can help you to get the best value out of your visit.
The pace of an ‘Out And About Tour’ is quite relaxed and our itineraries offer you many opportunities to explore the islands in depth and learn about the history, archaeology, wildlife and culture of the Outer Hebrides in the company of a knowledgable guide who lives on the island of Lewis.
A number of short and medium distance walks are usually included in each tour. Many of our walks make use of the existing footpaths and trails around the islands and a good many of them lead to sites of historical or archaeological interest.
Out And About Tours can put together itineraries that provide opportunities to see all the highlights of the Outer Hebrides, although we would strongly recommend that you allow at least 2-3 days for your visit in order to see all that our islands have to offer.
