Inner HebridesColonsay Harbour
The Inner Hebrides densest populations are in Skye and Mull. There is a wealth of culture to be found dating from times when Skye, in particular, was a more important sea-trading port than Liverpool is today. The geography of the area is unique to Scotland as the land is thought to be a splinter that broke off from the Nordic North-Atlantic continental shelf that results in spectacular natural features and a wealth of rare birdlife and wild plants. The influence of the Gulf Stream also results in temperate micro-climates, fabulous beaches and often memorable weather and seascape experiences.
