With modern air and ferry transport visiting
the Outer Hebrides has never been easier. You can fly into Stornaway
from Glasgow, Edinburgh
and Inverness in less than an hour and from London in less than
three hours. It is both easy and enjoyable with good airport
facilities at all airports and magnificent scenery from your bird’s
eye view from the plane.
Ferry access is also easy with links from Oban, Mallaig, Uig on
Skye and Ullapool to Castlebay on Barra in the south, Lochboisdale
on South Uist, Lochmaddy on North Uist, Tarbet on Harris and Stornaway
on Lewis. Once on the islands cars bikes and buses are all available
to help you get around. Most main islands are linked directly by
road over a bridge or causeway and those that are not, are linked
by regular and efficient ferries. Transport really couldn’t
be easier and with the recent addition of Sunday flights into Stornaway
the flexibility to travel is even easier.
Route planning can be arranged through the Tourist
Information Service or through the transport operators themselves.
