The isle of Harris is the southern and most mountainous part of the Island of Lewis and Harris, the largest island of the Outer Hebrides, Scotland. Although not an island itself, Harris is usually referred to as the Isle of Harris. A person from Harris is known as a "Hearach" and in gaelic the island is called "Na Hearadh".
Harris is naturally split geographically into two parts - North & South Harris - which are separated by West and East Loch Tarbert. These halves are joined by a narrow isthmus at the main village on the island, Tarbert. The highest peak in the North Harris Hills (and the Outer Hebrides as a whole) is called Clisham (An Cliseam) which is a Corbett (hills 2,500 to 3,000 feet high).
The West side of the South of Harris is characterised by its white sandy beaches. In stark contrast the rocky East side ("the bays") is dotted with small townships.
