First we follow the coastal route to the stunning Valley Strand. Our next port of call is the small Island of Berneray which Prince Charles claimed was his favourite Scottish Island. We also visit the Thatched Village of Howmore and the Kildonan Museum which features many artefacts on past Uist life.
Barra is steeped in Gaelic heritage and tradition and is without doubt one of Scotland’s hidden gems. Our visit to the southernmost of all the outer Hebridean Islands will no doubt be most memorable for the incredible views across the sound of Barra.
