The Hebrides were under Norse rule for 400 years as part of the Kingdom of Man. The islands still maintain Old Norse links in major landscape features, loan words and customs relating to domestic and fishing practices. Our guides will interpret landscape and maritime elements for you.
Celtic Culture and Gaelic
Gaelic; this ancient Celtic language is still spoken by 45 per cent of the population. It is a language that ties islanders to the land, to the learned wisdom of previous generations. It is transferred as the mother tongue from one generation to the next. Stories, songs and links to many other Celtic regions will be revealed by a guide while exploring deserted croft land and its complexities.
The Outer Hebrides are famous for the production of Harris Tweed. 100% pure wool, 100% produced in the Western Isles and protected by its own Act in Parliament. The Trade Mark was registered in the beginning of the 20th Century and the industry has gone in leaps and bounds since then. Its quality has no equal, its history born out of hunger and grit.
