The Barra Isles are down below Lewis, Harris and Uist and Vatersay is the only one that is inhabited.

It is the westernmost inhabited place in Scotland as well as the southernmost in the Outer Hebrides.

It has been settled for thousands of years and hosts the remains of an iron age dun (or fort) and a passage tomb from 1000BC.

There was a shipwreck here in 1853 where 350 of the 450 passengers and crew drowned.
