About the neighbourhood
The Isle of Harris is one of the islands making up the Outer Hebrides. To the north and joined by land is the Isle of Lewis, home of the main town of Stornoway, the Callanish Stones and the Butt of Lewis. To the south are the Uists, accessible by ferry from Leverburgh and at the very south of the archipelago is the island of Barra.

Most people arrive on the island by ferry from Ullapool to Stornoway or from Uig on Skye to Tarbert, Harris. The island can also be accessed by plane arriving in Stornoway and flights are available from Glasgow, Edinburgh and Inverness.
