If you want to experience Scotland at some of its most wild and beautiful points then a holiday in the Inner Hebrides is exactly what you’re looking for. The resort town of Oban, on the west coast of the mainland, is commonly considered to be the ‘gateway’ to the isles and from here you can easily hop across to Mull or Islay and then on to Skye, Iona, Ulva, Jura, Coll, Staffa, Colonsay and Oronsay. Some of the smaller islands are even car free, but that simply adds to their rugged remote beauty.
The Scottish isles are known for their fresh seafood and local distilleries, and they are also famous for their wildlife, from puffins and seals to sea eagles, otters and red deer. And the scenery, best explored on foot or by bike, will literally take your breath away. Whether you’re a wildlife enthusiast, an archaeologist, an artist looking for inspiration or simply a nature lover who wants to escape, a holiday in the Inner Hebrides will soothe your soul.
