Where are we? Vatersay, Outer Hebrides

Why tour here? Vatersay and Barra – accessible by causeway – are renowned for their white sand beaches. Vatersay is also the

start of the Hebridean Way walking and cycling route. It’s a tombolo, separated in the middle by a narrow isthmus. Take your pick from the beaches at Bagh Bhatarsaigh on the east

and Traigh Shiar to the west.

Don’t miss... The wildflowers of the machair, grassy plains particular to this region. Read more about touring on the Outer Hebrides on p22.
