The Hebrides

These islands off the west coast of Scotland are divided into the scattered group of the Inner Hebrides, of which Islay, Jura, Mull and Skye are the largest, and the long north to south chain of the Outer Hebrides with the main islands of Lewis and Harris (geographically one island) to the north, then North and South Uist, with Benbecula between them, and Barra in the south.
