Local Attractions

Harris has stunning countryside – made up of heather covered mountains to the North of Harris, the moonscape, icy clear freshwater lochs and craggy bays to the east coast of Harris known as the Bays and the most beautiful sandy beaches (regularly deemed amongst the most stunning in the world) to the west coast.

There is something here for everyone whether it be fishing, cycling, golf, surfing and swimming, bird watching, walking, taking in the local arts and crafts or finding out how tweed is made. The Isle of Harris has it all and more besides.

It is one of the most remote parts of the United Kingdom where you can be sure of a warm welcome from a community that treasures its past and heritage but embraces visitors to its shores to show them what the Island is all about.
