SCOTLAND: The Hebrides
The Hebrides Islands of Scotland are renowned for their wild, mysterious scenic beauty and the Gaelic people who call them home. Shot on several assignments for National Geographic by Jim Richardson this gallery includes Stone Age monuments and stone circles, seabirds, abandoned islands, scenic beaches and bay, archeology, geology, caves, lakes, lochs, hiking, and churches of these Western Isles. Besides the ever-popular Isle of Skye, you'll also find Lewis and Harris, North and South Uist, the Small Isles, including Muck, Eigg and Rum, the whisky islands of Islay and Jura as well as the wild archipelago of St. Kilda, out beyond in the wild Atlantic Ocean.
