The Western Isles of Scotland, also known as the Inner and Outer Hebrides are collectively some of the most beautiful islands you will ever see. The landscapes fluctuate from harsh, unforgiving mountains and conditions to pretty beaches and sand dunes. They are edged with an inconsistent coastline that can be composed of jagged rock one moment and smooth stretches of sand the next.
On the north west coast of the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides, you’ll find Dalmore Beach. Once home to a lively village community and rich history, it is known more today for its world class surfing and tourist beach. Located on a small, but beautifully picturesque bay, it offers some welcome shelter from the constant winds and waves. The west coast surf is said to be the most consistent in Europe; but due to the strong currents and sudden changes in the tides however, care is advised. The best way to reach the islands is by ferry as the scenery en route is spectacular; however it is also possible to fly.
