Isle of Harris in the Outer Hebrides
Isle of Harris: The Isle of Harris is in the Western Isles / Outer Hebrides off the west coast of Scotland has some of the most spectacular beaches in the country (possibly the world?) such as this beach at Scarista. The clean, unspoilt beaches of the Isle of Harris are washed by the crystal clear waters of the Atlantic Ocean creating a superb environment for surfing and other watersports.
The Isle of Harris is part of the Virtual Hebrides but as we are based in South Harris their is some emphasis on this side of the island (with the Leverburgh and Scalpay sites) but we are trying to rectify this as soon as possible to provide you with a comprehensive guide to the Isle of Harris. If you have any material on the island that you wish to submit for inclusion please do not hesitate to contact us as soon as possible. *Free Desktop Wallpaper Section
We only have a couple of articles on the island at the moment together with a few photographs, so please, take a look around and consider a holiday to fully appreciate the splendour of the island. Most of our photographs are in the location section.
There are a couple of very interesting sites of historical interest , none more so than St. Clements church at Rodel. Just walking around the graveyard provides a mass of information but the building itself houses some spectacular masonary including the grave of Alasdair Crotach. You will find further details in our History Section.
We hope that you enjoy your visit to The Isle of Harris web site and that you will soon be planning a holiday to the island me excellent accommodation such as Rodel Hotel (pictured left). You will find other places to stay in our Accommodation Section.
For further information on our island visit the Leverburgh Section of the Virtual Hebrides. The Virtual Hebrides is an excellent resource of information on the islands of the Inner and Outer Hebrides of Scotland and can be found at www.virtualhebrides.com.
