Driving the Outer Hebrides

Jump to last reply

Topped an excellent thread from 2010 with this info but it's been suggested I start a new one. Didn't want to look as tho I didn't do my homework!! Traveling June or July - this is a piece of a much longer trip in Scotland, but we will have a Hopscotch CalMac ticket and will travel Barra to Stornoway (then back to Ullapool) with our own rental car the entire time. What I'm struggling with is the pacing of this trip - a week, two? I know - it depends on what we want to do! We are early 60s, not much on hiking but short walks are fine, love driving, boat trips, great food and whiskies, meeting local people and most of all, access to local music. We'd like to stay 2-3 days in most places; does it make sense to stay on S. Uist AND N.Uist? Recommended month June or July? Does it matter for weather, crowds? We have seen note of a number of music fests in July, but have also read they tend to be for the 'youth culture' - we go to these routinely in the US but our Woodstock days are behind us for sure - comments? And finally, should I assume these beautiful beaches are wonderful to look at and maybe sit on, but not for swimming? Thanks to all,
O&H
