About the Isle of Harris
  The following excerpt is from the VisitHebrides website:

"Harris, from the old Norse meaning 'high land,' is often described as the 'high heart of the Hebrides'. With incredible diversity in its landscape. The East coast is a dramatic, rocky landscape, where it it hard to imagine how people managed to scrape a living from the land and the sea, whereas the West coast is breathtakingly beautiful more conventionally, with miles of golden sandy beaches and fertile machair soil with stunning mountainous backdrops."

The whole of Harris has been recognised as a ´Fragile Area´ by Highlands and Islands Enterprise and the main industries currently include Tourism, Fishing, Harris Tweed production and the construction and public service industries.

More information on the economic situation on the Isle of Harris and the Outer Hebrides can be found on the Comhairle Nan Eilean Siar Economy Fact File
Gaelic Proverb
