The Isle of Scalpay The island is peppered with small lochans. The largest of these is Loch an Duin (loch of the fort) which has a tiny island in it, with the remains of the fort still visible. Eilean Glas, a tiny peninsula on Scalpay’s eastern shore is home to the first lighthouse to be built in the Outer Hebrides.

The Isle of Taransay lies just off the west coast of South Harris, and was used to film the BBC programme, Castaway 2000. It can be best viewed from the roadside parking place between Horgabost and Borve. Boat trips are available during the summer months.

St.Kilda the island on the edge of the world – St. Kilda became one of Scotland’s five World Heritage Sites in 1986 and is one of the few in the world to hold joint status for its natural and cultural qualities.
