The Magic Of Barra

Lodge Based Tours

Lying on the very fringe of Europe the Outer Hebrides are amongst the most beautiful islands in the world. This string of islands offers fantastic scenery and wildlife, and make for a truly beautiful paddling destination. We will be based on the Isle of Barra, the most southerly inhabited island from where we will explore surrounding islands to discover bays, quiet lagoons and stunning white beaches.

As we slip quietly by in our kayaks we may catch a glimpse of dolphins and basking sharks. We will meet the island resident seals, otters, and a fantastic array of birds. Golden eagles can be spotted soaring over the islands: guillemots, and razorbills nest on the high sheer cliffs, whilst oystercatchers and plovers can be seen picking amongst the mussels and limpets on the seashore.

We will also take time to explore the islands on foot, and climbing the hills gives breathtaking views over the Hebrides, towards Skye, Rum, and beyond. The flowers of the islands are truly beautiful. During spring primroses festoon the dunes, whilst in summer flowers carpet the machair. Today the islands are home to fishermen and crofters and retains a strong sense of community where Gaelic is widely spoken.

Please read before booking

The trip price includes all breakfasts and lunches from Sunday morning to Friday lunch and suppers on Saturday, Sunday and Thursday evenings. Guests self cater/eat out for evening meals on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday (not included in trip price).

Rooms: On our trips we use twin and double bedrooms. We do expect guests travelling on their own to share twin rooms (same sex). We would need notice if this is unsuitable, and we will do our best to source a single room (single room supplement would be payable).

Single Travellers Covid Regs update...In terms of accommodation the price is for 2 people sharing a twin room. We are still waiting to hear about the Covid regulations for the summer, however if rooms can only be used by single family bubbles we would need to add a single use room surcharge of £95 for the week. (This is a 50-50 split between ourselves and the single occupant for a 2 person room for the week)

Departure: There are flights on both Friday afternoon and Saturday, whilst the ferry departs for Oban early Saturday morning.
