Barra and Vatersay
Wed 2 Jul 2014 09:39
A microcosm of the best of the Outer Hebrides on these 2 islands joined by a causeway.
Highlights : the "Barrathon", a challenging half marathon all the way round Barra. Very relieved to be spectating. Dining at the "Kisimul" curry house which has to be the most westerly in Britain, and more dining courtesy of nature with a pollack coconut curry and stir fried seaweed. Watching dolphins play off the beach with golden eagles in the valley behind. Then endless beaches, azure water, cycling, hillwalking, I could go on but the fun has been suddenly curtailed by gale force winds leaving us trapped on the boat in the care of our enormous anchor whilst being watched by inquisitive seals.
