Eriskay – Outer Hebrides

Eriskay (Scottish Gaelic: Èirisgeigh, pronounced [ˈeɾʲiʃkʲej]), from the Old Norse for “Eric’s Isle”, is an island and community council area of the Outer Hebrides in northern Scotland. It lies between South Uist and Barra and is connected to South Uist by a causeway which was opened in 2001. In the same year Eriskay became the ferry terminal for travelling between South Uist and Barra. The Caledonian MacBrayne vehicular ferry travels between Ceann a’ Ghàraidh in Eriskay and Ardmore in Barra. The crossing takes around 40 minutes.

Enjoy some views of this beautiful place here :

Going Beyond – on next step I take you into the Barra Island, last one of the Hebrides and quite exotic one.  :)
Watch out this space for more.

    Wow! What a gorgeous place. If I were fortunate enough to spend my time in this beautiful locale I would fall in love with Life each and every day (OK, more so than I already do ;) ) It looks like a great place to both play and rejuvenate. Thanks for sharing.
