The Isles of Skye, North Uist and Harris - Sail to Skye, North Uist and Harris
About this tour
Seascapes abound on this day tour of Skye and the Outer Hebrides. The tour starts from the port of Uig on Skye and takes the 1 hour 45 minute ferry journey across the Minch to Lochmaddy on North Uist.
North Uist is the tenth largest Scottish island. It has an area of 117 square miles and is connected by causeways to Benbecula via Berneray and to Baleshare.
The tour continues with CalMac onboard MV Loch Portain which plies the shallow waters of the Sound of Harris. The journey time to Leverburgh takes 1 hour. Leverburgh was originally known as Obbe but was renamed in 1920 when the industrialist Lord Leverhulme purchased the South Harris estate and decided to create a major fishing centre to supply his 400+ Mac Fisheries fishmongers shops.
The journey to Tarbert takes in some of the most spectacular scenery in the Outer Hebrides. Tarbert ferry port is the hub of Harris with the mountains of Harris forming a grand backdrop to the village - situated in a valley that slopes down to the port. The return to Uig on Skye takes 1 hour 40 minutes onboard MV Hebrides where afternoon tea is served.
The 2017 promotional rate for each passenger, including all ferry fares and afternoon tea on the ferry back to Uig is £26.00.
