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.
