When Hebridean boat tour operator Sea Harris announced earlier this year that they would be launching sailing trips on their new RIB boat to some of the smaller islands of the Outer Hebrides, I knew I wanted to be on board.
What I didn’t expect was to be one of only eight passengers on Pabbay’s maiden voyage to the Shiant Isles last month!
Having already sailed to the remote islands of St Kilda with Sea Harris back in 2014, I wasn’t expecting the Shiants, just a few miles off the coast of the Isle of Lewis, to be quite as impressive. In the end, the journey was equally as good, and my expectations were blown out of the water.
I don’t want to give away too much, as there will be a full blog post on these islands coming very soon, but in the meantime, here’s a video sneak peek of what you can experience on a boat trip to the Shiant Isles!
