Coast Hebrides logo

The coastline of the Outer Hebrides is around 2,500km in length and forms the predominant landscape feature of the islands. The coastal land, sea lochs and inshore waters of the Western Isles are rich in natural resources, wildlife, and cultural and archaeological heritage. Most of the population of the islands live on the coast or nearby and many derive an income from it and the surrounding inshore waters. CoastHebrides, the short name for the Outer Hebrides Coastal Marine Partnership, is the local coastal partnership for our islands.
