From Stornoway to Barra
Would 2nd Usinish bothy as a great place to stop.
When I camped on the west coast of S Uist by the beach, I noted that finding fresh water was a problem. There are a few streams, but they are slow moving and run across fields with animals in them, so I did not fancy using them. There are many houses dotted about to ask for water, but many of them looked un-occupied. If you do go to Lochboisdale, the Hotel (nice lounge and meals) lets you camp behind for free, and there are showers in the village to use.Barra is magical, if you stop in Castlebay, go for a curry in cafe kisimul, but book well ahead.
EDIT Just noticed this is an old thread, but my info may help someone else.
my other half did that last year - Cycled Barra to N. Harris then ferry to Uig and back down to Armadale .
The wind was from the NE in the Outer Hebrides and then changed to SW once she hit Skye. It only rained most days! She had to pedal quite hard on some of the downhil sections
Bit of a mission but she had a great time though (wildcamped most nights)
u should go with someone who is familiar with Outer Hebrides..u will face a lot of difficult in there. so a professional guy will be helpful..
Eh? What sort of difficulties?
It'll be the 'difficult' sea fret that obliterated 'mrultrasensitiv' response!
