If you are planning to pay a short visit to Lewis and Harris, a customized day tours would be the ideal way to see more of these beautiful islands.Out And About Tours can put together itineraries that provide opportunities to see all the highlights of both islands, although we would strongly recommend that you allow at least 2-3 days for your visit in order to see all that our islands have to offer.

My husband and I plan to come to Scotland around Oct 14-16. Years ago I was on a tour of the outer Islands and we are interested in a day trip but don't know how to go about it. Where do you pick us up? What are the choices? George is from Scotland but not seen these places and would like to see Barre...is this possible? What is the price for the two of us? Thank you.
