The Isle of Harris is the southern part of Lewis and Harris, the largest island of the Outer Hebrides in Scotland.
Harris is more mountainous than Lewis and so it’s a great hiking destination and ideal for nature lovers. It’s also famous for its namesake tweed, which can be bought in the popular village of Tarbert, the island’s main settlement.
The coastline has some incredible beaches, most notably the West Harris sands where you can gaze out to the uninhabited island of Taransay, giving you a true sense of peaceful isolation.
The Isle of Harris is a useful gateway to the Isle of Berneray immediately to the south. From the ferry terminal in Leverburgh, there are multiple sailings every day across to Berneray’s southern coast.
