Leverburgh / An-T-Ob - Homepage
Leverburgh ( An-T-Ob ) is on the Isle of Harris in the Outer Hebrides / Western Isles of Scotland. Although Leverburgh is only a small town it is steeped in history. Leverburgh was formerly known as Obbe, it was renamed in 1920 in honour of Lord Leverhulme who devoted much of his time, energy and expense on the area.It is hoped that this section of The Virtual Hebrides (the most visited website in the Outer Hebrides / Western Isles - of which leverburgh.com is part ) will eventually provide you with all the details you need to know about our town.
Leverburgh, being on the South side of the Isle of Harris, is surrounded by some of the most beautiful beaches to be found anywhere in the world - more details of which can soon be found in the Harris section of the Virtual Hebrides at www.southharris.com. This makes it a fine base for your holiday in the Outer Hebrides / Western Isles as all the amenities you would require are available.

Throughout the summer there are various events that can provide an excellent family day out, non more so than the annual Agricultural Show. At this years show there were stalls from as far away as Inverness - Bill Robertson's stall which showed some of his fine workmanship in creating shepherd's crooks and walking sticks while we watched.
