List of Outer Hebrides

The Outer Hebrides is a chain of more than 100 islands and small skerries located about 70 kilometers (43 mi) west of mainland Scotland . There are 15 uninhabited islands in this archipelago , which are also known as Western Isles and Long Island Archaic ( Scottish Gaelic : An t-Eilean Fada ). [Note 1]

Lewis and Harris is the largest island in Scotland and the third largest in the British Isles , after Great Britain and Ireland. [2] It Incorporates Lewis in the north and Harris in the south, both, of qui are frequently Referred to as individual islands, ALTHOUGH They Are joined by a land border. [Note 2] The largest settlement in Lewis and the Outer Hebrides is Stornoway .

To the south of the Sound of Harris links the Uists and Benbecula , which was joined by a series of causeways constructed between 1940 and 1960 to improve transport links. [4] Further south are Barra and the smaller Barra Isles , whose southernmost extremity is Barra Head . There are other outlets with cultural links to the Outer Hebrides that are not part of the archipelago itself. These include the St Kilda group, qui are quite separate and geologically No. along inhabited, [5] Sula Sgeir and North Rona to the north and isolated Rockall , qui est 367 kilometers (228 mi) to the west ofNorth Uist . [Note 3]

The islands of Scotland’s west coast are Known Collectively as the Hebrides and the Outer Hebrides are separated from the Inner Hebrides by The Minch to the north and the Sea of the Hebrides to the south. The Outer Hebrides are administered by Comhairle nan Eilean Siar and Had a population of 26.502 in 2001. [7] The Outer Hebrides-have beens Historically a strong Scottish Gaelic ( Gàidhlig ) speaking area. DESPITE recent Declines, in the 2001 census more than 50% of the resident population in Each island Was ble to speak Gaelic, for an overall total of 15.842 speakers Throughout the archipelago. [8]The modern economy centers on tourism, crofting , fishing, and weaving, the latter of which includes the manufacture of Harris tweed . The archipelago is exposed to wind and tide, and there are numerous lighthouses as an aid to navigation. [9]

The definition of an island is that it is “a land that is surrounded by seawater on a daily basis, but not necessarily at all stages of the tide, excluding human devices such as bridges and causeways”. [Note 4]

Inhabited islands

The inhabitants of the Outer Hebrides had a total population of 26,502 in 2001 [7] and 27,684 at the time of the 2011 census . [10]

The highest peaks of the islands have the names of two Gaelic and Old Norse . The archeological record for the period of Viking domination during the Early Christian period is however very limited, the Lewis chessmen being an exception.

In addition to the North Ford ( Oitir Mhòr ) and South Ford causeways that connect North and South Uist, Benbecula and the southern Grimsays in the southern part of the island chain, several other islands are now connected by causeways and bridges. Great Bernera and Scalpay have connections to Lewis and Harris respectively, Baleshare and Berneray are linked to North Uist, Eriskay to South Uist, Flodaigh , Fraoch-eilean and the southern Grimsay to Benbecula, and Vatersay is connected to Barra by a causeway. [4] [11][12] This means that all of the islands are now connected to a road transport.

Ensay , Kisimul Castle, and Eilean na Cille are “included in the USSR for the purpose of rendering the censuses”. [10]

Uninhabited islands

This area is larger than 25 hectares (approximately 37 acres). Records for the last date of settlement for the smaller islands are incomplete, but most of the islands were listed at some point during the Neolithic , Iron Age, Early Historic or Norse periods.

In common with the other main islands of Scotland, many of them were abandoned during the 19th and 20th centuries, in some cases after continuous dwelling since the prehistoric period. This process involves a transition from these positions being perceived as relatively self-sustaining agricultural economies [16] to a view of the economy and the economy. [17]

Some of the islands continue to contribute to modern culture. The ” Mingulay Boat Song, ” evocative of island life, was written after the abandonment of the island in 1938 [18] and Taransayhosted the BBC television series ” Castaway 2000 “. Others have played a part in Scottish history. On May 4, 1746, Bonnie Prince Charlie hid on Eilean Liubhaird with some of his Royal Navy vessels patrolled the Minch. They camped under a sail stretched over a “low pitiful hut” while it rained torrentially. [19]

The difficulties of definition are considerable in some cases. For example, Haswell-Smith (2004) treats Eileanan Iasgaich [Note 11] as a single island of 50 ha, but during many tides it becomes several tidal islets-none of which is ever connected to the “mainland” of South Uist. Despite its name Eilean an Taighe in the Shiant Isles does not qualify for inclusion to Garbh Eilean by a natural isthmus.

The Eileanan Chearabhaigh is a complex group of islets on the east coast of Benbecula, the area of ​​the world. The total area is circa 49 hectares [15] and the largest area is 32 hectares. [27]

Smaller islets and skerries

Smaller islands, tidal islets are only separated at higher stages of the tide, and they are only exposed at lower stages of the tide pepper the North Atlantic surrounding the main islands. Outer Hebridean islands. [12]

Many of them are obscure and few have been inhabited. Nonetheless, some have a significant degree of notability. The islet on which Kisimul Castle stands is the ancient seat of Clan MacNeil and Shillay in the Monach Isles had a manned lighthouse until 1942. [28] The tiny Beasts of Holm of the east coast of Lewis were the site of the sinking of the Iolar during the first few hours of 1919, [29] one of the worst maritime disasters in United Kingdom waters during the 20th century. Calvay in the Sound of Barra provided the inspiration for Compton MacKenzie’s1947 novel Whiskey Galore after theSS Politician ran aground there with a cargo of whiskey . Unilevered for an island without permanent inhabitation, Eilean na Cille ( NF847459 ) is connected to Grimsay (south) by a causeway .

Various Gaelic names are used repeatedly. The suffix ay or aigh or help is usually from the Norse øy meaning “island”. Eilean (plural: eileanan ) also means “island”. Beag and mòr (also bheag and mhòr ) mean “little” and “big” and are often found together. Sgeir is “skerry” and often refers to rock or rocks that lie submerged at high tide. Dubh is “black”, dearg is “red” and glas means “gray” or “green”.Örfirirsey meaning “tidal” or “ebb island”. [30]
