Stand Up Paddleboarding on Barra – Outer Hebrides
The Main Points Location – Scurrival, near the Barra Airport (famously the only airport in the world where the runway is on the beach) SUP – Own Fatstick Inflatables, 10′ Pink Panther and 10’6″ Blue Lagoon Cost – Free access to the beach Conditions – Coast/protected bay Other users – No one! Except an inquisitive seal Entry Point – Sandy beach with gentle incline Surrounding amenities/Bathrooms- Camp site with bathroom/shower, laundry and Camp shed. Getting There – CalMac Ferries out of Oban if you are just going to Barra or you can do as we did and make it part of a longer trip through the Outer Hebrides and come over from South Uist. Map Current Weather Conditions Wee Blether We happened upon a wee gem of a campsite here called Croft 2 Campsie the website takes you to the cottage accomodation so I don’t think you can book online. There is however a campsite almost right next door – Scurrival Campsite which you arrive at first and where the bulk of the people camping in the area stop. If you want to drive another couple of hundred meters you will find the one we stayed at which is a little more quite. For other information on SUPing in the Outer Hebrides see my post on North Uist.
