Adventures to be had in the Hebrides
There are plenty of extreme sporting activities to be had in the Hebrides, rock climbing, kite surfing, sea kayaking to mention a few. There are also adventures for those who like to go hill walking, bird watching and exploring some of the more remote archaeological sites, and maybe even visit St.Kilda a Hebridean Island truly on the edge. Not physically able, or prefer a less strenuous experience, adventuring in the Hebrides is very much still an option. You needn’t get out of the car to spot Whales and Dolphins from the shore around Loch Roag, or from Tiumpan Head Lighthouse in Point, Red Deer on the moorland roads and even Otters and Seals, but you need a keen eye, and binoculars are always handy.
