Western isles dating
Since the introduction of Christianity in the Outer Hebrides around 600AD, religion has been a cornerstone of life in the Western Isles.Religion on Lewis, Harris and North Uist is predominantly Protestant while religion on Barra, Benbecula and South Uist is mainly Catholic (these Outer Hebrides islands featured in An Island Parish, the popular BBC TV series, which followed the fortunes of Western Isles priests and their congregations) The difference in Christian denominations in the Outer Hebrides has, however, caused little division amongst inhabitants, and they have lived peacefully side-by-side for centuries. But the official definition of the Western Isles - and what is covered here - is the 130-mile chain from Lewis to Barra, that we used to call the Outer Hebrides. Stretching from Lewis in the far north-west to Arran off the Ayrshire coast, there are more than 50 inhabited islands off Scotland's west coast, and around five times that number of unoccupied islets.
The population of the area is over 27,000, much of it spread around rural areas and the majority (18,500) living on Lewis.
