Outer Hebrides, Scotland

In September 2017 Graham Nevett and I spent two weeks cycling the length of the Outer Hebrides. We took the ferry from Oban to Barra and cycled north, using ferries and causways between islands. We paid a visit to our friend Andy Laffan on Lewis, and eventually flew home from Stornoway.

We stayed at Dunard Hostel, Castlebay, Barra (2 nights); Howmore youth hostel, South Uist; The Tractor Shed bunkhouse, Paibeil, North Uist; Berneray youth hostel; No. 5 hostel, Drinishader, Harris (2 nights); Rhenigidale youth hostel, Harris; Andy's place, Linshader, Lewis (2 nights); Gearrannan hostel, Lewis and Dunroamin B&B, Stornoway, Lewis.
