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

Sunshine - bike ride to Vatersay

Tuesday, 14 June

We rode our bikes to the Isle of Vatersay which is connected to Barra via a causeway.  Very hilly which is exhilarating on the way down the hills but the return trip tests one’s stamina!  The beaches are simply breathtaking - white sand, blue-green clear water, rocky or rolling green hills. 

We walked part of the Vatersay trail which entailed climbing up steep hills and traversing rough ground.  Gorgeous views!
