The 5 hour ferry to Barra was sufficiently choppy that I turned a bit green and had to go and sit out in the fresh air at the stern.
Barra is a lovely tiny little island. We saw quite a lot of it in a quick drive around this morning. We drove out to a beachi in the South where a local, who had just got his van stuck in the sand, said "you're taking a chance bringing that out here!" Luckily we didn't have any trouble reversing back up the track.
Dunard hostel is a pleasant enough place.
Just arriving in port; better get back to the car!
Update: Stopped for lunch by a beach at the top of South Uist and there's a weak signal. Beautiful clear sunny day. We stopped briefly at the Howmore hostel to take a look even though we're not staying there. It seemed very cosy. Some cyclists there said the Berneray one we're on our way to tonight is even better.
More later! :)
