Top Local Tips for Castlebay

Isle of Barra Golf Course, Outer Hebrides This is an interesting golf course in a beautiful setting. It was a dizzily day with a bit of wind and a few minutes of sunshine, which is probably the norm. There is no attendant but an honor Box with envelopes to place the 10-pound per person fee. There were no pull carts; you must carry your bags. There are no tee times, you just show up and play. We were the only ones there in the morning but two cars arrived as we were leaving. The course was naturally unspoiled but largely neglected except for the greens, which were surrounded by electric fences to keep the animals away. Because of lack of markings, it took us 20 minutes to figure out how the system worked, which tees went with which greens and where to start. In the end, we weren’t sure if we went from the right tees to the right greens but we had fun. We didn’t finish the 9 holes as we were getting a bit frustrated of not being able to find the tee plus we were getting achy from the strenuous hike up and down the hills. If this course was given a bit of TLC it could be turned into a real gem as it is in a magnificent location with breathtaking views. A colony of seals could be seen swimming in a lagoon and sunning on the nearby rock, the view was nature at its best

Great beaches, weather permitting The beaches on Barra and neighbouting Vatersay are beautiful and incredidilbly quiet.

Take or hire a bike! Barra is quite small and the best way to explore it is on a bike. We cycled round it, stopping to watch the plane take off from the beach and went over to Vatersay. word of warning - couple of killer hills out of Castlebay and to/from Vatersay - it's not as flat as they claim!
