There are regular ferry and airline services to our islands. The ferry operator for mainland and inter-island ferry services is Caledonian MacBrayne.

Ferries run from Oban to Lochboisdale on South Uist and from Uig, Isle of Skye (accessible by bridge) to Lochmaddy in North Uist.

For a journey, south to north, throughout the islands of the Outer Hebrides, take the ferry (5.5 Hours) from Oban to Castlebay, Isle of Barra. Alternatively take the ferry from Mallaig to Lochboisdale, South Uist (3.5 hours).
Travel north through the Uists on to Harris and Lewis, using the inter-island service to cross The Sound of Barra and The Sound of Harris.
From Stornoway, Isle of Lewis there is a ferry to Ullapool, Wester Ross (1 hours travelling time to Inverness).
If preferred the journey can be done, north to south, starting from Ullapool.

Though it is possible to travel the length of the islands in 2/3 days, we recommend that plenty time is taken to appreciate the delights and diversity of the different islands in the chain.
