Getting To Eriskay

Sail with CalMac from Oban to South Uist then cycle or drive to Eriskay. Alternatively, sail from Harris or Skye to North Uist and then travel south by road through the Uists, finally crossing the causeway to Eriskay. Or sail from Oban or Tiree to Barra and then make the short ferry crossing from Ardmhor direct to Eriskay.

Fly from Glasgow and Stornoway to Benbecula or Barra with Flybe. On a clear day the aerial scenery is spectacular. Enthusiasts will love landing on the Triagh Mhor, at the north end of Barra: the only runway in the world washed twice a day by the tide.

Things To See And Do

  • Explore the outstanding beaches, coves and bays.
  • Admire the wildlife, otters and Eriskay Ponies. It’s also a bird-watchers paradise…golden eagles, corncrakes, short-eared owls and more.
  • Hiking, walking, cycling, windsurfing, sailing and fishing.
  • Kayaks available for hire.
  • Sea-angling with Barra Fishing Charters (Tel: 01871 890384)
  • Climb the gentle hills, Ben Scrien (609 ft) and Ben Stack (403 ft), and take in the unsurpassed views.
  • Visit the local hostelry, Am Politician, named after the famous ship immortalised in Compton MacKenzie’s “Whisky Galore.”
  • Play a round of golf at Askernish Golf Courrse, South Uist
  • Visit MacGillivrays Hebridean Gift Shop, Benbecula.

Neighbouring Islands

South Uist boasts a large nature reserve and is a haven for rare wildlife. It is also home to the oldest golf course in the Outer Hebrides. Also consider visiting the Kildonan Museum housing the sixteenth century Clanranald Stone and the ruins of the house where Flora MacDonald was born.

Barra is a true gem in the Western Isles. Kisimul Castle takes centre stage in the bay to the south of the island, overlooked by the dominant Ben Heaval. The west side sports stunning beaches, with rocky coves and inlets featuring on the east side. Barra Fishing Charters (Tel: 01871 890384) provides a unique opportunity to experience sea-angling or arrange a custom wildlife-spotting trip.
