We visit the mainly Gaelic speaking Island of Barra, which is small and romantic.  Barra’s past brings you Norse legend, fierce fighting, and Celtic mystery, while the present holds all the promise of a wonderful break with beautiful beaches, soaring hills, deserted roads and the warmest of welcomes.  We also visit Lewis the most North Westerly tip of Britain; it has some great historical monuments such as the standing stones of Callanish.  A popular, but demanding touring holiday not to be missed…

PLEASE NOTE:  This is quite a demanding touring holiday, with several hotels and ferries being used. Three of the hotels have no lift; please decide if this holiday will be suitable for you before booking.
