The Isle of Barra lies at the southern end of the chain of islands known as the Western Isles or the Outer Hebrides.

Getting here by ferry

Caledonian MacBrayne operates a ferry service from Oban to Castlebay. The cruise on board a fully equipped modern car ferry takes around five hours, providing plenty of opportunity to relax and even spot a dolphin or whale on route.

There is also a ferry service from Eriskay to Barra with up to 5 crossings a day. The journey takes around 40 minutes across the Sound of Barra.
