We are lucky to have a good airport only 13 miles from us on Benbecula where car hire is available. There are regular flights from Glasgow and Stornoway, both taking under an hour. Onward air travel from Stornoway airport to Inverness and Edinburgh is now possible.
If you come by road there are ferry connections from Uig on the north of Skye to Lochmaddy, this is the most favoured route but also from Mallaig to Lochboisdale on South Uist. Foot passengers do not need to book ferry journeys but it is absolutely essential if you plan to bring your car.
