Having just returned from our first trip to the Outer Hebrides I though I would share a few photo's and thoughts on our trip. Due to Mrs B having only 2 weeks holiday available we did manage to spend 10 days traveling through the islands from Barra in the south to lewis in the north and this felt a relaxed pace. We used ferries as per the map below, its well worth setting up an online account with www.calmac.co.uk we then booked our ferries on the go a few days before travel, there is also a good free app with status updates on sailings, delays, cancellations. We stayed on campsites and small campervan/motor home aires, we did not book anything ahead of our trip, just turned up and always found plenty of space. It is worth ringing ahead on the day to check, as not every where is still open in October. We used Martin Dorey "Take The Slow Road Scotland" as a reference for planning the trip. Our best trip to date, a reminder of how stunning our Island home is.
