The Isle of Harris has a varied landscape, with spectacular beaches on the west coast, rugged mountains in the north and on the east coast, tourists can take a look at some of the oldest rocks in the world, dating back three thousand million years. This area is known as ‘The Bays’ because of the many small inlets, populated by small villages, each with their own unique character.

Isle of Harris is a tranquil island, great if you want to escape from the day to day life and you're looking for a non-touristy, crowded place.
