Harris is the southern and more mountainous part of Lewis and Harris, the largest island in the Outer Hebrides, Scotland. The rugged landscape has been used in films such as Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. As well as this, the nearby island of Taransay became well-known following the BBC show Castaway broadcast in 2000 and various scenes were shot on Harris itself. This, alongside the wonderful scenery, makes the area popular with hikers and walkers and those seeking an escape from modern life.
