What to do: Cycling, clearwater kayaking, swimming for the brave, heaps of shellfish to grill, fun pub. people and music – also on Sundays. Boat trips to islands with more or less the same fate as St Kilda without being dramaqueenish about it. Seal- and whalewatching.How to get there? From Oban, South Uist or flights from the mainland landing on a tidal beach – uahhhiii!
