There are 3 main routes to Barra:-   Fly from Glasgow The flight from Glasgow to Barra takes approximately one hour, it is the quickest route. Barra Airport is the only airport in the world with scheduled flights landing on a beach so if you like flying then it is a great opportunity. The aircraft is a twin otter and the beach landing is lovely and smooth. On a clear day you will get magnificent views. For flight information visit www.flybe.com   Ferry from Oban To get to Oban you can either catch a bus or train from Glasgow or drive. From Oban you catch a Caledonian MacBrayne ferry to Barra. The ferry takes you up the Sound of Mull and across the Minch to Barra passing some other islands on the way. It is a relaxing journey and a great chance to unwind and breathe in the fresh air. You will pass local fishermen at work and be able to watch the birds and if you are lucky some of our marine life too. This journey takes approximately 5 hours. For more ferry information contact www.calmac.co.uk   Ferry from Skye This is the longest way round if you are travelling from Glasgow. However, if you would like to see more of the Outer Hebrides or are on tour round the north of Scotland then this could be the route for you. This route takes you from Uig in Skye to Lochmaddy in North Uist. You can then drive or take a bus down through the Uists. There is then a ferry from Eriskay to Barra. You could do this trip in a day or take your time and soak up the Hebrides atmosphere but make sure you have plenty of time left for your stay in the Jewel of the Hebrides - Barra.
