Leverburgh is the Isle of Harris’ second largest village, and it can be found in the Outer Hebrides.
Until 1921 Leverburgh was known as An t-Ob (Obbe), but when the village became more than a small settlement the name was changed. This was when Lord Leverhume (who founded the famous Unilever company) purchased the entire Isle of Harris and set about transforming it into a thriving fishing economy comprising of a huge herring processing business. Unfortunately, Lord Leverhume died in 1925 and his dream was never realised.
The area around Leverburgh is well known for its exceptional beaches and spectacular views, and to come here is to experience true peace and quiet, something that is a rarity in this busy world of ours.
All of Harris is stunning, and worth exploring. For adrenalin lovers there is the Harris Outdoor Adventure Centre where thrill seekers can go sea kayaking, windkarting, and mountain biking amongst other things.
For a more tranquil day out, visit the Harris Tweed Company, the Mission House Studio, enjoy an island tour, check out one of the many art galleries, or simply got for a refreshing country walk letting the island air fill your lungs.
