The Isle of Barrais is a Scottish island in the Outer Hebrides or Western Isles. Castlebay, the ferry port, is the main village. Barra is connected to Vatersay by a causeway, as well as further south are the remote islands of Pabbay, Sandray, Mingulay, and Berneray.

If you don’t want to drive, there is a local bus that runs from the airport to Castlebay and Airdmhor if you are travelling north through the Outer Hebrides or just over to Eriskay for the day. A service from Castlebay to Vatersay is also available, but it must be reserved in advance.

This is a difficult question that is largely dependent on your own availability of time. You can spend 7 nights and 6 days there, but you’ll want to stay for two weeks, or you can drive around the island in less than an hour!

The aurora borealis is most likely to be seen in Barra between mid-October and mid-March, and the best times to see it are when there is a full moon.

The best time to visit the The Isle of Barra is between April and October, when the weather is most stable and mild.

The best way to get around the Isle of Barra is to rent a car at Barra Airport. Public transport on Barra is efficient but having a car is the best way to discover the best that Barra has to offer.

Castlebay was a fishing port in the nineteenth century and is now the main town on the Isle of Barra.

Traveling to Barra from Glasgow Airport requires one of the most unusual landings in aviation history. The island has one of the world’s only beach airports, with sands so wide and densely packed that they double as a runway.

Barra and Vatersay are fantastic walking islands, whether it’s a stroll around the harbour, along one of the many beaches, around the island by road, or more challenging hill walks. The tourist board makes some suggestions, but the best advice is to just go!

Barra is a special place to visit, especially if you arrive by plane. It has long been renowned for its beauty, boasting beaches, hills, machair, and moor all on a small island. Flights between tides land on the beach at Cockle Strand, making it one of the most unusual airports in the world.

Golden Eagles can be seen soaring over the wild windswept hillsides, Puffins, Guillemots, and Kittiwakes nest on the high sheer cliffs, and Oystercatchers and Plovers can be seen picking amongst the mussels and limpets on the seashore.

You certainly can. Many rules must be followed in order to protect the island, wildlife, and others. A motorhome or campervan can be used for wild camping. Before arriving on the island, all campervans and motorhomes should reserve a campsite or designated bay.

The islands are one of the few places in Scotland where Scottish Gaelic is still widely spoken.

Midges aren’t a big problem in the Outer Hebrides because the Atlantic breeze keeps them at bay. You may want to use a midge repellent on the few days when they do appear. Midges can become more prevalent on the Isle of Skye later in the summer.

Previous visitors spent an average of £30 ($36) on meals for one day and £45 ($54) on local transportation. In addition, the average hotel price for a couple in Outer Hebrides is £120 ($144). So, a one-week trip to the Outer Hebrides for two people costs around £1,500 ($1,800).

The island’s interior is hilly and uninhabited. White sandy beaches made of sand created from marine shells line the west and north sides of the island, while the southeast side has numerous rocky inlets. A sandy peninsula to the north leads to the beach airport and Eoligarry.
