Hebridean Way Cycle Route

150 miles (242 km)

This epic cycle route explores 10 of the islands of the Outer Hebrides, off the west coast of Scotland.
The route runs for 184 miles with ferry crossings taking you between the islands. It's a remote area so ideal if you're looking for a peaceful ride with little traffic. The islands include some stunning scenery with beautiful beaches and lots of interesting wildlife to see.
The route starts at Vatersayat the southern end of the islands. You then head north to finish at the Butt of Lewis on the island of Lewis.
See below for maps and a complete gpx file for the route. A walking route with the same name runs parallel with the cycle route. You can see it marked on the Ordnance Survey map below.
