This island lies about two miles off the West Coast of Harris and was made famous in 2000 for the BBC's fly on the wall production of Castaway 2000. It is deserted now, with the last villagers leaving in the 1970s, but is an island of such astounding beauty and historical interest that it merits special emphasis. With a natural arch, numerous sandy beaches, machair lands and wildlife, this island is a haven for the stressed. You can have your own castaway experience on the island. The schoolhouse and Mackay house where the castaways stayed have been renovated into self-catering holiday cottages.
Location: Taransay, United Kingdom
