From mountains and lochs, long sand beaches and secluded coves there are so many places to explore on the islands. Activities include cycling, kayaking, fatbiking, paddleboarding, boat trips, birdwatching, shooting, fishing, golf, foraging, hiking, whisky tasting and swimming. It’s a great place for families and dogs, for romantic breaks and just to get away from it all. There’s a wealth of history to uncover or just relax with a drink in hand and taking in the spectacular views. Most distilleries have visitor centres for shopping, eating and whisky tours and tastings.
