Hello and sorry in advance for long post:
We are due to visit the islands at end of June and want to have a rough structure so as to make the most of our time but relaxed enough to stumble across hidden gems. We start with flight to Barra. The idea of our trip is for my OH’s big birthday and it incorporates everything he enjoys and to purchase a mans Harris Tweed Jkt!
So, the question for this post is for our time in Harris&Lewis. Realistically we have 2 full days plus part of a day. One of these days is a Sunday. Here’s a brief outline.
Friday ferry arrival Leverburgh 15:30 - accom Tarbert
Sunday - eagle observatory/beaches
Bearing in mind we would have to book tours, which is somewhat restrictive. Is the following doable without too much stress and actually worth doing (I realise that’s a bit subjective but opinions welcomed, there may be alternatives we don’t know about )
Saturday - after car collection:
Stornoway to Carloway Mill tour > Callanish Stones > Uig bay > Abhainn Dearg Distillery tour (open til 4pm).
