"One of my favourite experiences has to be driving up North Glen Sannox on the Isle of Arran at sunset and then sitting very quietly watching the Red Deer as they came down from the hills to drink, magical."
Mr M Henman.

"Sitting at Fidden Farm camp ground on the Isle of Mull.  A lone piper played the sun down as it set, calling in the windsurfers at the end of the day."
D. Watts.

"We visited Rum in May 2009 and what a fantastic place it is. While we were there we met wild mountain goats and saw 2 golden eagles circling each other over a hill top. I also walked the ridge from Hallival to Askival which is magnificent and well worth the effort.”
D. Allen.

"Our trip to Islay was a journey of a lifetime. We boarded the ferry at Ardrossan for Arran where we had B&B a few days. We then crossed to Mull of Kintyre for a couple of days, before sailing to Islay from Tarbet. We had a most glorious time exploring Islay, and on Jura we found a lovely garden (in the Gulf Stream) and shared tea and scones - a real Scottish treat!"
Mr D White.

"We went to the Western Isles for the first time in 1968 and have never stopped going back! My favourite memory (so far!) is of the Coral Beach up past Dunvegan on Skye. We spent an idyllic day there with my small daughter, picnicking, paddling, playing in the sunshine and eventually watching the sun set as it turned the white beach and still-warm waters to molten gold.”
Mrs J Diack.

"Myself and a kilted friend bought an Island Hopscotch and visited Lewis, Harris and Skye. Horgebost Beach is to die for - and wild camping with all facilities! The sunsets are terrific on the Outer Hebrides, it's like an orchestra playing! And the Callanish Stones are a must-see."
J Jackson.
