Barra in the Outer Hebrides is a small island measuring 8 x 5 miles and covers about 20 square miles. The island is hilly with many beautiful beaches. The resident population numbers about 1,400. Both Gaelic and English are spoken on this mainly Catholic island. My photo albums of Barra & Vatersay

Going home

Sunday, 19 June

We boarded the ferry in the morning for the 9.20 departure and discussed when we'd return to Barra for another visit. We were happy with the flat which was our accommodation, but would love to have had wifi. The location was convenient to the main town of Castlebay and was only about 1/2 mile to the grocery store. This is ideal for bicycyles instead of using a car. It would be nice to have a house or cottage facing the ocean as we've had on the Isle of Colonsay, but the price would be at least double and would likely not be convenient for using bicycles only.
