EXPLORE THE HEBRIDES
Join Fleur de Lys as she takes guests on wildlife watching and walking holidays on the West coast of Scotland.
Discover remote anchorages, fjord-like lochs and historic ruins on Skye, the Small Isles and the Uist Isles.
Sailing “over the sea to Skye” as expressed in the historic Skye Boat Song, encapsulates the magic of arriving at this beautiful Island from the sea.
Centuries later, a sea voyage is still the best way to soak in the incredible scenery and atmosphere of this very special island. Wildlife watching on the Isle of Skye is amazing and nature lovers will be rewarded with numerous opportunities to observe many animal species in their natural habitats. On or close to land you can spot Red Deer, Otters, Sea Eagles, Hen Harriers and the Pine Marten, while out at sea you’ll see seals, dolphins, porpoises, basking sharks and a variety of whales. Keep cameras at the ready to capture memorable moments, you won’t be disappointed!
THE SMALL ISLES
The group of four idyllic Hebridean islands know as “The Small Isles” is located south of the Isle of Skye. The best way to get a feel for these delightful islands is to island-hop to each one from the sea.
The Isles of Canna, Rum, Eigg and Muck are each totally different from its neighbour, all with tiny populations, each with its own fascinating culture and history. The scenery, serenity, history and wildlife on a journey through these islands are remarkable. And wherever you are, there are breathtaking vistas of the inner and outer Hebridean islands.
