The Isle of Islay, Queen of the Hebrides has an impressive shoreline of cliffs on the Oa Peninsula and a lot of them virtually sheer. Islay has a very impressive sea stack called the Soldier's Rock. Along the whole route watch out for Buzzards and if you're lucky you may even spot a Golden Eagle.

The 'Misty' Isle of Skye
This dramatic coastline surrounds some of the most exceptional and varied scenery to be found anywhere. Skye is about 50 miles from north to south, and around 25 miles from west to east at its widest. With abundant bays, sea arches, stacks, caves, massive cliffs, waterfalls, fossils, tidal islands – a lifetime’s worth of exploration and discovery. The Black and the Red Cuillin mountain range are always on the skyline. The complex geology of Skye has formed such different landscapes from the North to the South of the Island giving rise to dramatic and stunning views. You can explore the Isle of Skye on our luxury guided walking holiday which takes in Morar & Isle of Skye; https://aboutargyll.uk/programme/luxury-walking-tours/morar-skye.html

On the Isle of Colonsay there is a sanctuary cross made of stones on The Strand to Colonsay; there was an old story that any Colonsay fugitive who reached the cross was immune from punishment provided he stayed on Oronsay for a year and a day! The original cross is no longer there. You can explore this island on the inner Hebrides on our Islay, Jura & Colonsay walking holiday; https://aboutargyll.uk/programme/walking-holidays/islay-jura-colonsay.html

Rock art in Scotland
Since I moved to Scotland, the rock art has intrigued me. I don't live very far from Kilmartin Glen, one of the best places in Scotland to see rock art, and I have gone there many times visiting and revisiting the many rock art panels in the glen. You will visit Kilmartin Glen during various walking holidays we offer. Read more in our blog: https://aboutargyll.uk/about-us/blog/rock-art-in-scotland.html
