Scottish island to host first mountain festival

Those who love to put on the hiking boots and walk in Scotland but fancy something new might wish to try the inaugural Isle of Harris Mountain Festival.

Held from September 24th to October 1st, the Hebridean event is the first of its kind and will include guided walks, as well as photography workshops, short films and kayaking.

Guest speakers will include outdoors writer Cameron McNeish.

The island may appeal to walkers looking for remote locations to enjoy, with the festival website stating: "The interior of North and South Harris encompass some of the largest un-roaded areas of wild land in Scotland, offering limitless possibilities for walking and exploring."

Guided treks include a free event on the final day of the festival, covering the 12 miles between Loch Mhiabhaig and the shores of Loch Seaforth.

Last year saw a call from Ramblers Scotland director Dave Morris for the island to be made into Scotland's third national park.
