Inner Hebrides

These unspoiled islands, stretching along Scotland’s western coast, are a haven for wildlife.

  • From the castles and mountains of Mull to the spiritual heritage of Iona, there’s plenty here to capture the imagination.
  • The Isle of Skye is the largest island in the Inner Hebrides, and a big draw for photographers who come to capture its magical landscapes.
  • On the Isle of Mull, you’ll find Tobermory, known for its colourfully painted buildings.
  • The Inner Hebrides are best reached from Glasgow, via a prearranged tour package which – depending on which island you’re going to – should take around 5 hours.
  • The Isle of Skye is connected to the mainland by bridge. You can reach its main town, Portree, in around 5 hours by hire car or coach.
