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, and 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.
Please be aware that the Mallaig ferry service is more prone to disruption in adverse weather conditions, therefore we advise opting for the Uig – Lochmaddy crossing where possible. We are not liable to reimburse accommodation costs due to ferry cancellations and therefore advise all future guests to obtain travel insurance before travelling to the Hebrides.
