Edit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
Barra is the southern most island in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland. It is the ancestral homeland of the MacNeil clan. It is about eight miles by six miles. At the south part of the island there is the small town, Castlebay. In the bay there lies a small island and on the island there is a castle.

The Island of Beneray shown is only one of the many islands in the Barra group. The highest mountain on the island of Barra is Ben Heaval or Mount Heaval, 1200 ft. elevation. It is a moderately difficult climb and offers a spectacular 360 degree view of the Atlantic ocean, The Minch (body of water separating the Outer Hebrides from on the Inner Hebrides and the mainland of Scotland) and the Barra group of islands.
