MH,
I take it you mean the Outer Hebrides? (ie Barra to Lewis). It all depends on what you want. The outer islands have a different atmosphere I think to the others. They are remote but have the best runways (Benbecula and Stornoway). The scenery is very diverse - mountains, moors, white sandy beaches, sea lochs etc etc. Stunning on a nice day. They are also less touristy than Skye and Mull which may or may not be what you want.

I have my own thoughts on liferafts and think you would better with survival suits. With regard to being nervous over water (which we all are), should we not be at least as nervous over places where the fields are small, the land is hilly, the ground boggy?
