About the Festival

Fàilte/ Welcome

                

The Outer Hebrides Wildlife Festival 2022 will take place this year from

Saturday 25 June to Saturday 02 July. 

Take the chance to get closer to nature and the wildlife of the Outer Hebrides through guided walks, boat trips, outdoor activities, exhibitions, cèilidhs and more.

 

Have you ever wondered about the flowers on the machair or the birds you see on the islands? Our nature experts will guide you through the special places where our most iconic species live. On the machair, at our coasts, on moorland or on the sea, the islands are home to many different types of plants, birds, and mammals so let’s celebrate and help look after them.
