What are the best places to discover the arts and culture of Barra Island?

Castlebay

Castlebay is the place to go for ingredients to cook back in your Barra self catering holiday home, as you will find supermarkets as well as independent shops here. Those in search of local products and gift ideas will have a pleasant surprise, as there are several artisan run shops in the centre of the town.

Children will especially love the magic of Kisimul Castle, located in the bay by Castlebay. Head here to learn the history of the MacNeil Clan and their various exploits over the course of a thousand years.

At the end of your day, a hot chocolate in Café Kismul is sure to put a smile on your face and boost your energy. For a bigger meal, try their mouthwatering Italian and Indian dishes, which incorporate fresh, locally caught seafood. More local treats can be picked up at the Hebridean Toffee Shop. Enjoy a cup of tea and some toffee inside, before picking up gifts to take back to friends.

What are the best activities for families on Barra Island?

Wild encounters

Take the family over to Seal Bay and you may just spot big, friendly eyes emerging from the water. On sunnier days you may even spot the cute seals basking on the rocks.

A fantastic way to explore the clear waters off the coast is by taking a sea kayaking tour. Seals, basking sharks, porpoises, dolphins and orcas can become your paddling partners. Clearwater Paddling are local experts in arranging your kayaking adventure, leading tours for all ages and experience levels.

Where are the unique attractions on Barra Island?

The Uists & Benbecula

If you take a ferry on your way north through the Outer Hebrides, you will arrive at South Uist, another island of the Outer Hebrides. The crossing itself is truly picturesque, taking in eye-catching white houses perched on the cliffs.

The Uists are also connected to the island of Benbecula by road, and taking a bus from the habour is easy. Despite their fantastic scenery and attractions, South Uist, North Uist, and Benbecula remain insiders' secrets, enjoyed by a number of savvy travellers.

South Uist is renowned for its excellent golfing, while surfers adore the conditions of the coast of North Uist. From here you can also organise a boat trip to one of the most fascinating forgotten regions, the uninhabited UNESCO protected islands of St. Kilda. Even if the population never exceeded 180 people there, this archipelago was continuously inhabited for two millennia until 1930, when the last locals left.
