In light of COVID-19, everyone's health and safety is the most important thing. This means despite the love and desire to share our friendly, passionate and unique island, we must ask everyone at this time not to travel to our islands and remote rural communities.Bringing the virus to these fragile and less accessible places puts unnecessary pressure on essential services and health services for local residents.Ferry travel will only be available for those who permanently live on the islands and who have an essential need to travel to and from the mainland for essential supplies or business.WelcomeThe Isles of Barra and Vatersay are the most Southerly inhabited islands in the Outer Hebrides and the most Westerly in the U.K. White Sandy beaches and beautiful scenery mixed with a rich history and a strong community spirit are only some of the reasons that Barra and Vatersay won The Best Island Community, Best Scottish Community and Best UK Community Awards at the 2008 Calor Village of The Year awards.You can get to the Isle of Barra by air or by ferry.
