We travelled in a Motorhome and got a Ferry from Uig in Skye to Lochmaddy in North Uist, had a brilliant time there and in south Uist, Benbecula and Eriskay. We then took a ferry from Berneray to Leverburgh in Harris. Went to Hushinish which has an amazing beach. Also great beaches at Luskentyre in Harris. Brilliant old Black houses at Gearrannan with a Museum and hostel. Also toured through Lewis and stopped for lunch at Stornoway, you can get a Ferry to Ullapool but we went back down to Harris and got a Ferry from Tarbert to Uig in Skye.

    GBG - Harris and Lewis is definitely worth visiting - it is still relatively off the tourist radar so doesn't get the same number of visitors as Skye.

    It was great to read your review. We too have a motorhome and have planned to go to Scotland to do the NC500. I think we need to add some more time to our trip so that we can visit Harris and Lewis.

    How wonderful. I love the beautiful scenery , peace and tranquility of the Highlands and Islands. I've only done it by coach tour and cruise. This sounds lovely.

    I loved your photos, which brought back happy memories of holidays on Harris and Lewis. We really fell in love with the island and especially the wonderful pale sand beaches, backed by the machair with the spring flowers.

    We always made a point of visiting the Black House Museum at Arnol and talking the staff there. I remember sitting in the black house one very wet and windy afternoon listening to stories told by the custodian. Our clothes smelt of peat for the rest of the holiday.

    Walking the Golden Road (allegedly given its name from the amount it cost to build) down the east side of Harris was also on the list and following the tracks to long gone crofts down by the shore. This really was life on the edge.
