The island of Berneray is just off the northern coast of North Uist and is linked to it by a new road causeway. It is explored by this excellent and very varied walk, taking in the views from its highest hill, a standing stone, the picturesque thatched hostel, and one of the most magnficent beaches in the UK.


Mix of minor roads, boggy hill ground, machair and sandy beach. The walk has marker posts but not frequent enough to be followed without a map.

Public Transport
