Lewis and Harris are a single landmass connected by a spectacular mountain road. From Leverburgh - at the southern end of Harris - it’s a short ferry journey to the small island of Berneray, which is linked to North Uist by causeway.
More causeways connect North Uist, Benbecula, South Uist and Eriskay, and there is a regular ferry service running between the latter and Barra. From Barra, you can reach Vatersay by causeway.
Caledonian MacBrayne (CalMac) operates a comprehensive inter-island ferry service, with single and return fares available. Buy one of CalMac’s popular island hopping tickets and you can explore other islands in addition to the Outer Hebrides.
For trips to St Kilda, it’s a matter of making arrangements with a local boat operator.
Explore the islands of the Outer Hebrides by sea and by causeway. The distances are modest, the rewards remarkable.
