Other things to do related to Harris

From Harris, its only a short trip north to get to the Isle of Lewis through the hills of Harris.  Harris and Lewis are both joined at the head of Loch Seaforth and are not actually seperate islands.

Also, its a short drive to get to the Isle of Scalpay, which lies to the East of Tarbert, the main village.  Access to the island is over a very imposing bridge.  The island has a shop and some good walks and, if you are interested in the culture of the islands, many residents still speak Gaelic.

The final island that is in reach of Harris is the remote Isle of St. Kilda.  Boat trips on fast modern boats can be picked up in Leverborgh in the south of Harris.  This is a full days trip and is well worth the cost and time spent on a boat, particularly if you like seascapes and wildlife.

All in all, there are many things to do on the Isle of Harris, so give yourself enough time to enjoy them.
