The Isle of Barra is considered by many to be the most beautiful small island in Britain. Its tranquillity, unique culture and fascinating history combined with the wealth of activities available ensure a memorable holiday for all. Take a guided boat trip from Castlebay port and down to Mingualay at the southern end of the Outer Hebrides. Basking sharks, minkie whales, dolphins, seals and an incredible number of seabirds, including the elusive puffin, can be seen in their natural habitat, amidst the magnificent cliffs. Boats are also available for charter, offering the opportunity for a deserted island barbecue or an exhilarating trip around the tiny uninhabited islands. Sea anglers can experience fishing in the rich waters of the Minch. Trout fishing is also available on the island. Historical sites and places of interest abound. The medieval castle of Kisimul, seat of the Clan MacNeil of Barra, is one of the first landmarks one sees on arrival, situated on a small rocky island just 200 yards from Castlebay port. Its imposing, fairytale setting and access only by small boat makes for a memorable visit. Ancient standing stones, Neolithic sites and prehistoric settlements offer an insight into the rich and varied history of this fascinating island. Sea kayaking trips, cycling, walking, swimming, exploring the little rock pools, or just watching the sunset over the turquoise Atlantic ocean at the end of a perfect Hebridean island day all contribute to the unique charm of this totally unspoilt and incomparable island.
