Leverburgh, on the Isle of Harris, Inverness-shire


Leverburgh is a village in Inverness-shire; a port on the south coast of the Isle of Harris in the Outer Hebrides, looking out over the Sound of Harris. It was once a small, ordinary fishing village named Obbe and owes its current name and form to Lord Leverburgh, who bought the estates of the Outer Hebrides and set out to develop a new port here.

Leverburgh is the second largest village of Harris, after Tarbert alone. The nearby area is known for its beautiful beaches, especially along the west coast road. (Read more)
