An Is­land Tour 2017

The Oban Times - - Feature -

THE HE­BRIDEAN Is­lands are an ethe­real cor­nu­copia of clear wa­ters, an­cient cas­tles, friendly fish­er­men, lo­cal fes­ti­vals and se­cret coves. It is rare that the words ‘ re­mote’ and ‘ac­ces­si­ble’ can be used to de­scribe the same des­ti­na­tion. How­ever, just a ferry ride away, the He­brides are an­other world. Ver­dant moun­tains de­scend into deep, blue lochs; iso­lated and un­in­hab­ited is­lands are yours for the day. And, of course, there is prox­im­ity to some of the finest golf cour­ses in the coun­try. The wildlife of the He­brides is rich and var­ied, from sea birds to sea urchins, from ot­ters to ea­gles and more. Sail among seals, watch whales, chat with the dol­phins or fish for your sup­per – all in pris­tine wa­ters, where the only sound is the splash of the waves against the hull, the sounds of the puffins or the wind in the trees.
