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

An amazing place
frigid here in Peoria, Illinois - we hope to visit you some day when it's a wee bit warmer!!!
Coming to stay on Barra in June is the light at then end of our tunnel. Hoping very much that this will still happen after last year’s cancellations.
Looks lovely. We always used to camp at Eoligarry.
I so hope restrictions are lifted so I can visit in May ! Looks amazing...

Barra is an Island that will be forever in my heart . Visited twice diving.
My memories will live with me forever. The Locals Called us The Barra Coal divers. As we always ended the day diving on a Small Puffer to retrieve Coal to keep our rented Cottage fire going and warm. I will never forget the fantastic people, white shell beaches and wild primroses.
