Commenting on the news that the Travel Magazine has named Luskentyre Beach on the Isle of Harris as one of the best in the world, Na h-Eileanan an Iar SNP MP Angus Brendan MacNeil said:

“This is another fantastic tourism boost for the Isle of Harris and the Outer Hebrides.”

“I am not surprised that Luskentyre Beach has ranked alongside shorelines in Brazil, Florida and South Africa and is described as having Caribbean-white sand and Maldives blue sea.

“Luskentyre Beach is incredibly beautiful and worthy of this recognition and well worth a visit together with the many beaches in the Outer Hebrides such as the beaches in North Uist and Uig in Lewis, as well as every other island in the Hebrides.”
