Got a trip coming up with the following schedule:-

1.5 days on Lewis
1.5 days on Harris
6 days on Berneray/North Uist/Benbecula/South Uist/Eriskay - we are staying on Eriskay so a day trip to Barra is also a possibility

I've a pretty good idea of where we are going on Lewis and Harris, but would value some pointers on North and South Uist, I'm primarily a landscape shooter (not a wildlife photographer) and would like to locate old abandoned crofts/buildings especially those with sea views.

Is Barra worth a day trip? First ferry gets there 08.50 and last ferry leaves at 17.30

Have a look at the walks on this site - https://www.walkhighlands.co.uk/ .All sorts of distances and terrain catered for.

On North Uist the beach north of Grenitote(there is a minor road that goes NW of Grenitote for about half a kilometre) is excellent.

Anyone on this group, living in the 'Outer Hebrides'?

I'm currently looking at buying a small property on 'Lewis', to use myself and also rent out to other photographers/artists/hikers etc.

Would be interested in speaking with anyone with experience of the area.

Cheers

The Castlebay bar on Barra is a must visit, if the Vatersay Boys are in residence !! Heavy drinking is a requisite.

If you’re staying at Eriskay, pop into Barcaldine Castle next door and see if you can have a look around. We lived there for 3 years. It’s a private b&b now.

One thing that I remember about Lewis. The amount of scrap vehicles dumped in people's back yards. Even a few rusty old buses.

Cracking place to get some photos though.
