Uist & Barra
Few experiences are as unique as our tour of the Uists and Barra. Imagine traveling through seven islands in one day and a ferry journey.
Our trip begins on the beautiful island of North Uist and ends on the stunning island of Barra. We drive through endless horizons, timeless landscapes and varying habitats and nature reserve.
The contrast between the islands is staggering and the views endless and magical. From the low-lying west side of the Uists to the high hills of South Uist we meander through a charming kingdom. A place once marauded by Vikings and then under the long reign of the Lordship of the Isles. The past is always present and we follow in the footsteps of these islands first inhabitants, a mere 8000 years ago
We then journey through the small island of Eriskay to board the ferry over to the enchanting island of Barra. We lunch in Castlebay and explore the powder sand beaches that make these islands so special. This is a trip to remember and to experience.
