Outer Hebridean Islands of Scotland


Island of Vatersay.

There is a great deal of romance attached to the Outer Hebrides of Scotland, partly because of their apparent remoteness but also because of their long history, both real and mythological. Strung along the western side of Scotland, there is only the open ocean between the Outer Hebrides and North America. In this feature you will find lots of information about the main islands in the group, illustrations of a number of them and links to sites where you can learn more.

The illustrations in this feature were kindly provided by Colin Palmer at Photonet. You will find lots more photographs (in a larger format) of these lovely islands on his site (and maps showing exactly where the islands are located). Many of the links to the specific islands below will take you to this site also.
