Self-catering holiday cottages in Castlebay

Backed by sloping mountains, this sheltered bay on the Outer Hebridean island of Barra is a scenic place to get away from it all on your next break to Scotland. Head to a Castlebay cottage for a peaceful break in a breathtaking location with wonderful landscape to explore on long rambling walks or by simply gazing out to the skyline from the comfort of your cottage escape. From Castlebay, you can see the famed Kisimul Castle or the ‘Castle in the Sea’, and you can hop aboard a boat to visit this medieval fortification. It is the seat of the chief of Clan Macneil and on a visit, you can climb up the battlements to soak up wonderful views across the bay. If you’re feeling energetic, pull on your hiking shoes to tackle Heaval, the highest hill on Barra with winding trails leading over wild hillside and views of the bay as you walk. About halfway up you’ll pass a white statue of the Virgin and Child, don’t forget a picnic so you can gaze back on the way you’ve come and marvel at this remote and spectacular island.
