Discover Inner Hebrides
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.
Things to do in Inner Hebrides
Staffa National Nature Reserve
This small island off the Scotland west coast looks like it came from another planet. Its hexagonal columns were formed millions of years ago by a volcanic eruption and a blanket of lava all over the Atlantic Ocean. Several years of waves hit these columns, forming the magnificent Fingal cave.
