Kath and Ali Duce have lived in the Isle of Harris all their lives, and know every secret corner and hidden beauty spot after endless hours of exploring the island.
Together for 21 years, they have two children, Claire age 9 and Finlay age 6, and are active members of the close-knit Harris community.
Kath is a director with the Harris Voluntary Service and helps to run the local Rionnagan Oga charity. Ali is a Health Manager working for a local salmon farming company and has been a volunteer Coastguard for the last 13 years.
They now love to share the best of their wonderful Outer Hebridean homeland with visitors, revealing the stories and special spaces and places that only those born and brought up in the Isle of Harris will know.
The Island of Harris & Lewis is a unique place, a wild and elemental island on the edge of north-west Scotland, exposed to the Atlantic and full of wonderful beaches, high mountains and moor.
Here in this remote corner of Europe you will find the best of the natural world and a community full of Outer Hebridean culture, crofting, Gaelic language, music and song.
History and old stories are to be discovered around every bend and there is great food and drink to be enjoyed too as this beautiful and ancient land is explored.
From the golden sands of Luskentyre to the magnificent Callanish standing stones, there is so much to be revealed as we journey to the heart of our island home.
We can take you to any and all corners you want to see. Plenty of opportunities to walk around and explore the sites.
Most tours are led by Kath who has a lifetime of knowledge. You can learn a little Gaelic and any cultural questions about island life will be answered along the way.
Our tours usually begin in Tarbert. We offer tours around Harris and Lewis. Please see Tours page for further details. Times and schedules to suit your group's holiday plans can also be requested.
From machair birds and otters to seals and soaring eagles, the Isles of Harris & Lewis have plenty to see. We'll help you find the best spots to spot them on our journey.
LOCAL FOOD & DRINK
We love local produce, so if you want to sample freshly landed shellfish or sip local gin spirit we can help. We also know the best places for a pot of tea and great home-baking.
There are ancient churches and centuries of hidden history to uncover as you learn about crofting traditions and experience the age-old craft of Harris Tweed weaving.
