Inner Hebrides

Western Isles

Inner Hebrides, Scotland, (Western Isles.) The islands of this group lie off the much-indented west coast of Scotland. They extend from Skye, the most northerly, which is separated from the Outer hebrides by the waters of the Little Minch, to Islay, in the south, which lies off the narrow Kintyre peninsula, and is at one point only some 25 miles distant from the coast of Northern Ireland. The largest and most picturesque island is Skye, famous for the precipitous Cuillin mountains, while lona and Staffa, two of the smallest, are both of unique interest, the former for its Cathedral and associations with St. Columba, and the latter for its strange basaltic rocks and the well-known Fingal’s Cave. The principal islands are: Skye, Mull, Islay, Colonsay, lona, Jura, Rum, Staffa and Tiree, Raasay.
