Outer Hebrides One Of The World's Top Ten Places To Visit

Posted on January 25, 2016 at 1:34 PM

Earlier this month, London-based travel book company Rough Guide named the Outer Hebrides as one of the world’s top ten places to visit in 2016. As the sole British region and one of only three from Europe to make the list, the Western Isles stands proud amongst some of the most exotic locations on the planet.
The publication describes the Western Isles as follows:

"During the long summer days, the isles’ turquoise waters and white sandy beaches appear Caribbean-like, with top-notch waves for surfers and kiteboarders.
"Inland, castles, archeological sites, museums and quaint cottages make for perfect stops along the dramatic walking trails and cycle routes.
"While each island possesses a unique character, all are spectacular and overlooked."
Rough Guide’s top ten list

1. Alaska, USA
2. Gujarat, India
3. Tasmania, Australia
4. Quebec, Canada
5. Tohoku, Japan
6. Northern Cape, South Africa
7. Lombok, Indonesia
8. Calabria, Italy
9. Castilla Y Lyon, Spain
10. Western Isles, Scotland
