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

Inner Hebrides, Scotland

INNER HEBRIDES - AT A GLANCE

  • These idyllic isles are a dream come true if you’re into the great outdoors. Nature lovers will also get to see all sorts of lesser spotted species in the wild, from otters to white tailed eagles.
     
  • 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.
