South Berneray circuit

A lovely coastal walk crossing the machair to reach Loch Bhuirgh and passing a monument to a modern day giant before reaching the vast beach on Berneray's west coast. Can be combined with the north Berneray circuit to make a much longer day walk.


Pathless coastal walking on dry turf, sandy beach and dunes with occasional waymarkers.

Public Transport

Bus to Berneray via causeway from North Uist; also ferry link to Leverburgh in Harris.


Car park on machair along track from Community Hall on the Borve (Borgh) road, Berneray. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
