      Hebrides allows readers to see the landscape through the eyes of Fin. This work is an odyssey for Peter May, revisiting the islands that were to become the This is a stunning photographic book celebrating the landscape of the Outer Hebrides as depicted in the popular trilogy of books, known as The Lewis Trilogy/5(62). Live Like a Local in the Outer Hebrides Ok. So I’ve heard of the Outer Hebrides but where exactly are they? The Outer Hebrides is an archipelago of a couple of hundred islands scattered across the sea off the west coast of Scotland. Formed a mere million years ago, their wildly contrasting landscapes are absolutely breath-taking.

      The Outer Hebrides is one of the most magical places on earth. As my love affair with Scotland developed over the last few years, I remember whispers from people saying I had to go there. Having spent a week road tripping, adventuring and wild camping through the OH, I urge you to add these islands to your bucket list. The scenery more than makes up for the effort as we traverse beneath the striking mountain of An Clisham – the highest point on the Outer Hebrides. Keep an eye out for Golden Eagles here. Crossing the spectacular fjord of Loch Seaforth, we continue onto the Isle of Lewis and across the wild moor before turning west back to the coast.
