Castlebay Guide

Castlebay Ferry Port

Castlebay is the main settlement and port on the Isle of Barra in the Outer Hebrides, Scotland. Once a thriving herring port during the 19th Century with over 400 fishing boats in the harbour, it now provides ferry crossings to Oban on the Scottish mainland and to Lochboisdale, South Uist. The small terminal building is on Pier Road, just off the A888 and has a seated waiting room with free parking available just outside. There is also a bus stop a short walk away. Gazing out to the mysterious islet Kisimul Castle whilst sampling some local toffee from the Heart Hebrides factory is a great way to pass the time. Or you can simply stroll around the harbour to admire the beautiful scenery.
